STS Aviation Services gains UK CAA approval at Birmingham facility

STS Aviation Services: Birmingham maintenance facility

STS Aviation Services (STS), a division of STS Aviation Group, has gained CAA Part-145 approval to conduct base maintenance operations at its 12,000sq ft aircraft maintenance facility in Birmingham, six months after acquiring the hangar from Monarch Aircraft Engineering.

Initially, the aircraft types included in the new approval cover the A320 family, A330, B737NG and B757, but there are plans to add additional aircraft in the coming months. Capabilities include aircraft modifications, structural repairs, engine changes, A Checks, C Checks, lease transition and bridging checks.

Senior vice president and CEO of STS Aviation Services, Mick Adams, said: “Against the devastating backdrop COVID-19 has cast across our industry, I am happy to be able to deliver some good news.

“STS Aviation Services has received Part 145 approval from the UK Civil Aviation Authority; and in record time no less.

“While our company’s first priority right now is the safety and welfare of its people, we look forward to commencing operations as soon as possible and welcoming our growing global customer base to a truly remarkable facility.”

The company has also announced plans to increase the workforce at the BHX maintenance centre to 100 mechanics and engineers by the end of 2020 and by 2021, to more than double this number to over 250 employees.

“Even in our current global climate, aircraft need to be maintained and modified,” said chief commercial officer for STS Aviation Services, Kevin Dudley.

“This puts our company in a unique position to not only help the global aerospace industry in a great time of need but to also help the Mechanics and Engineers who keep our aircraft flying safe.”

With this new approval, STS Aviation Services now operates two base maintenance facilities in the United Kingdom; one in Birmingham (BHX) and the other in Newquay (NQY).

The company also operates a third base maintenance facility in Melbourne, Florida.
