Innovative and Cost-Effective Engineering Solutions

From brilliant minds comes innovation, and this is where the STS Engineering Solutions team excels. Our engineers understand the aerospace industry, and they’ve got the know-how to handle everything from repairs and modifications to STCs. With more than 200 years of combined experience, our team stands ready to augment your engineering with a cadre of multi-disciplined experts and immediate access to FAA DER Services.

Virtual Engineering Program

FAA DER services available through our Virtual Engineering Program enables even small aviation companies to obtain FAA approved data on a prompt and cost-effective basis. The multi-disciplined engineers who participate in this program are so highly skilled, they often perform advanced analysis that precludes aircraft repairs and/or minimizes AOG repair time.

Our Virtual Engineering Program is capable of achieving amazing results because it’s been structured around a matrix that encompasses a full range of engineering disciplines – structural, electrical/avionics, systems, interiors, composites and powerplant – and employs standardized software that allows our engineers to perform as effectively and efficiently as they would on site.

Service Structure

Engineering: Experienced engineering and technical assistance is provided on site or through our Virtual Engineering Network. 24/7 FAA DER support is available to expedite an aircraft’s return to service. We also offer a full-range of capabilities for repair, modification and STC.

FAA DER Services: Through our Virtual Engineering Network, we can provide FAA approved data on an as-needed basis and eliminate airline dependency on OEM companies. The result yields a faster return to service for your aircraft(s), a reduction in repair time and greater cost efficiency.

Key Personnel

The STS Engineering Solutions' Management Team has advanced degrees, FAA Airframe & Powerplant Certificates and decades of aircraft maintenance experience in both MROs and OEMs.

Our Senior Vice President of Engineering has worked as an aerospace engineer for more than 30 years; first with the manufacturer of the world’s premiere commercial jetliner then as a structures DER directing the engineering department of an international airline.

From the top down, we understand the cost of AOG. This means that our engineers will never just sit around waiting for an OEM to deliver repair instructions. Instead, they simply go out and fix the problem!

Unbeatable know-how, unmatched work ethic and wealth of experience is exactly how we provide the aerospace industry with enormous cost-saving engineering solutions.

Saving You Money

You pay less and get faster service – that’s the difference. STS Engineering Solutions provides a 50% savings from typical OEM charges, and we’re far more responsive when supplying time-critical information and approvals.

We also provide same-day service for hangar aircraft and respond within two hours for line aircraft. Our professional staff combines detailed analysis coupled with strict attention to regulations and years of experience in an effort to minimize aircraft downtime; thereby saving you money on both material and labor costs.

In a nutshell, quick service and greater cost efficiency is why STS Engineering Solutions has doubled its size every year since its inception!
