West Star Aviation Paints First Embraer Lineage at Chattanooga Location

Jan. 28, 2022

West Star announces they have completed their first paint project of an Embraer Lineage aircraft at their Chattanooga, TN (CHA) location, one of their four full-service facilities. The recently announced expansion will allow for even more space to assist customers with their MRO services at the CHA facility.

Of the four full-service locations, CHA has the newest and largest paint facility at 48,000 sq. ft., with the ability to accommodate larger aircraft. The aircraft was received on October 30th and delivered back to the customer on December 4th. West Star’s CHA paint hangar is among only a few MROs that can facilitate the sizable lineage aircraft.

“We were excited to be able to offer our state-of-the-art paint facility to the customer and complete their requested paint project within a short timeframe, while also exceeding their expectations with the final delivery,” said Jeremy Turnbough, paint program Manager (CHA).

The Chattanooga location is a full-service MRO facility offering paint, maintenance, engine, interior and avionics repairs. Additional information about this location or any of the other main or satellite locations can be found on the website or by contacting the sales team in the area.

West Star is proud to have been voted the #1 Preferred MRO for eight consecutive years from 2014-2021 in Professional Pilot Magazine's annual PRASE Survey. The survey first included the 'Most Preferred MRO' category in 2014 and West Star has won the #1 slot each year since its inception. West Star Aviation specializes in the repair and maintenance of airframes, engines and APUs, avionics installations and repair, major modifications, interior refurbishment, exterior paint, accessory services and parts.
