STS Aviation Services (STS) has announced that it is now AS9110C certified in the UK.

    This certification grants the company, which is a division of STS Aviation Group, the authority to maintain, repair and overhaul both civilian and military aircraft in accordance with aerospace law and global regulatory requirements.

    According to the MRO provider, global operators in need of airframe and OEM services in the UK have “keenly awaited this news” that they have “a go-to provider in the region for base maintenance and aircraft modification program requirements”.

    Head of safety and compliance for STS Aviation Services, Mike Ainsworth, said: “Gaining this international accreditation for our Quality Management Systems was extremely important to this team. Now we can press forward with the strategic initiatives we have in place to become the go-to provider for MRO services throughout the United Kingdom.”

    “Having just recently entered the MRO market in the UK after acquiring Apple Aviation and purchasing the former MAEL base maintenance facility in Birmingham, STS Aviation Services has said that it considers this AS9110C accreditation to be “a significant signal of progress and a great indicator for what’s to come.”

    Chief commercial officer, Kevin Dudley, stated: “Compliance and airworthiness standards are in this company’s DNA.

    “And while remaining agile, we have established a process-oriented and customer-centric core structure. The AS9110C accreditation underpins that structure and serves as the foundation for our team’s ability to deliver quality and efficiency to its growing customer base.”
