BIRMINGHAM, April 20, 2021 — STS Aviation Services (STS), a division of STS Aviation Group and a leading MRO provider to the global aviation industry, announces a five-year contact to provide fuel tank repair services for the Royal Air Force’s fleet of C17 military transport aircraft.

“We are very excited to continue our longstanding relationship with the Ministry of Defense and the Royal Air Force,” said Patrick Meyer, Vice President of STS Aviation Services. “Supporting this campaign compliments our company’s existing business strategy while allowing our team to expand its capability set even further.”

The bulk of work for this program will take place at RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire and will be carried out by an experienced team of STS Fuel Tank Specialists based in the United Kingdom.

“Having expert aircraft maintenance personnel close to RAF Brize Norton is a huge strategic advantage for all parties involved,” said Rob Gray, Business Development Manager for STS Aviation Services. “Our mobile technicians are known internally as a ‘quick reactionary force,’ which means our existing Engineers and Aircraft Fuel Tank Specialists will always be accessible when maintenance needs arise on the C17 fleet.”

And the great ones, teammates like Colleen Cyr, are always available to help in a pinch.

You see, IT professionals really are just like The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. He helped Dorothy and Toto just like IT helps all of you. And while you may never know what lies behind the curtain, trust in the fact that our IT team is always hard at work to make sure your journey through “Oz” is as smooth and enjoyable as it can be.

Good morning everyone, and welcome to the latest edition of our “Meet the Team” series. Today, it gives us great pleasure to formally introduce Colleen Cyr. Colleen joined STS Aviation Group earlier this week as an IT Systems Analysts stationed at our company’s aircraft base maintenance facility in Melbourne, Florida. And since much of our global workforce is still doing the remote-work thing, we wanted to pen this post in an effort to help you all get to know Colleen just a little bit better. To that end, we asked Colleen three questions, and her responses to those questions are offered below. 

We hope that you enjoy learning more about your new teammate, and Colleen, welcome to the family. We’re so excited to have you!

I have a lot of varied interests. Anything from hiking / running to traveling, exploring, board games, jigsaw puzzles as well as technology and cars.

Question 3: What is your favorite movie of all time, and why is it your favorite?

My favorite movie of all time is Fried Green Tomatoes (check out the movie trailer below). It is my favorite movie because it shows a sisterhood that a lot of women forget about as they age, and then life happens.

STS Aviation Group is Flying to Orlando for MRO Americas 2021

It wasn’t that long ago when conferences were commonplace throughout the global MRO industry. And with 2020 being one of the most trying years in recent memory, a year where everything changed, the STS Aviation Group team is finally ready to get back on the road once again to meet, in person, all of our business partners, colleagues and industry friends. 

This April 27 -29, STS Aviation Group will be putting its nose-to-tail aircraft maintenance solutions on display at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida for MRO Americas 2021. Our team will be stationed at booth #825, so if you and your company plan on attending the conference, fly on over to our space and say hello!

One of the key topics of discussion will no doubt be our company’s recent global growth. A little over one year ago, we expanded our base maintenance services into Europe with facilities at both Newquay (NQY) and Birmingham (BHX) in the United Kingdom. In addition, STS Aviation Group added to its already robust aircraft interior service offerings after it acquired Airbase Canada based out of Montreal. 

But that’s not all… our global line maintenance segment has also grown. We now operate 29 active line maintenance stations in the United States and the Bahamas as well as 7 stations in the United Kingdom and France. Add three more station in Canada, and that brings our total active station count 40!

For all of us at STS Aviation Group, providing value to our customers rests at the core of everything we do. That is why our company has adopted a cross-segment business model that genuinely offers the global aerospace industry with “Total Solutions to Keep You Flying!” 

Once again, we are so excited to be heading back to MRO Americas in person this year, and we cannot wait to see you all there!

STS Aviation Group Issues Media Statement

Logo on Jacket

Jensen Beach, Fla., March 8, 2021 – Over the weekend several troubling images from the Capitol riot that took place on January 6, 2021 in Washington, D.C. were shared with the STS Aviation Group team. Depicted in those images appears to be a man, wearing white gloves and a black STS Aviation Group jacket, spraying some sort of chemical substance at a group of officers trying their best to quell a very tense and dangerous situation.

After launching an internal investigation we have not been able to identify the man captured in these photos as a current, or former, employee of STS Aviation Group and / or its subsidiaries.

Moving forward our organization will offer no further comment on this matter other than to say that the federal law enforcement agents who are carrying out this investigation have our full support and cooperation should they require it.

Thank you kindly,

STS Aviation Group

STS Line Maintenance Receives FAA Diamond Award

Jensen Beach, Fla., February 2, 2021 – For the third year in a row, STS Line Maintenance receives the FAA Diamond Award from the U.S. Department of Transportation and Federal Aviation Administration. The award recognizes the company’s commitment to aircraft maintenance training and safety.

“Given the unprecedented year we’ve all just experienced, this is quite an accomplishment,” says Mark Smith, Group President of STS Aviation Services. “The promotion of safety through regular and ongoing training has always been a focal point for our line maintenance teams, but to receive the FAA Diamond Award means 100% participation from our entire staff. That’s hundreds of people rallying around a common cause during one of the most trying times in modern history. Again, quite an accomplishment.”

Back in the early part of 2020, STS Line Maintenance enrolled itself into the FAA FAAST program; a program designed to promote safer skies through the ongoing training and education of Aircraft Maintenance Technicians. In order to receive the FAA Diamond Award three years running, every touch labor specialist employed by STS Line Maintenance had to successfully complete the year-long program with ratings levels that exceeded the Federal Aviation Administration’s justifiably high standards.

“We fix, troubleshoot and modify commercial aircraft for a living,” says Robby Bush, Sr. Vice President and General Manager of STS Line Maintenance. “That’s a responsibility and a privilege we take very seriously. This award reflects that, and I’m proud of our team for rallying together to overcome a few sizeable obstacles and capture this recognition on behalf of the organization.”
