Grand Junction, CO, July 16, 2012 - West Star Aviation has acquired a roll-around HS125 700A/B/800A/B/XP series landing gear ship set. This ship set will allow West Star to remove the original landing gear from an aircraft while still having the capability to reposition the aircraft as required for any additional services, i.e. paint, maintenance, etc.
Roll-around gear supports decreased downtime during gear swaps and multi-shop events where paint is tied to airframe maintenance and gear overhauls. In addition, West Star Aviation can support in-house gear overhauls/repairs on HS125 700A/B, 800A/B, 1000A/B, 750XP, 800XP, 850XP and 900XP series landing gear.
“This roll-around ship set will offer a whole new solution for operators who would like to have their aircraft serviced during a gear restoration,” says Steve Goede, Accessories Program Manager, West Star Aviation. “In most facilities, once the landing gear is removed, the aircraft must remain stationary. This roll-around ship set allows West Star to overcome this obstacle and complete multiple services at once, decreasing customers’ downtime.”
West Star Aviation, Inc. specializes in the repair and maintenance of airframes, windows, and engines, as well as major modifications, avionics installation and repair, interior refurbishment, surplus avionics sales, accessory services, paint and parts.
In addition to its facilities in East Alton, IL; Grand Junction, CO; Columbia, SC; and Dallas, TX, West Star Aviation runs the maintenance operations at Aspen-Pitkin County Airport in Aspen, CO and at Spirit of St. Louis Airport in Chesterfield, MO.
