West Star Aviation’s Grand Junction facility in Colorado, USA, has been approved by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) and is now in compliance with the China Civil Aviation Regulation (CCAR)-Part 145 Maintenance Organization.
The purpose of the approval includes overhauling and repairing landing gear for business aircraft and also the specialized service of ultrasonic, eddy current x-ray, liquid penetrate and magnetic particle inspection.
This certification is the latest to be added to a growing list of authorizations that have allowed West Star’s landing gear and accessory overhaul to expand business worldwide. The company’s overhauls and repairs provide a wide variety of business jet accessories including wheels, landing gear, batteries, oxygen/nitrogen cylinders, valves and many other components.
“This new CAAC authorization will allow us to support landing gear overhaul events in China,” said Steve Goede, Grand Junction accessory program manager for West Star. “We are excited as our business continues to grow and expand both in the USA and worldwide.”
