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.”

STS Mod Center Kicks Off Thales Wi-Fi Installation Program in Melbourne

MELBOURNE, Fla., October 12, 2020 — STS Mod Center (STS), a division of STS Aviation Group and a leading MRO provider to the global aviation industry, kicks off a major aircraft connectivity project in Melbourne, Florida that will call upon the team to install Thales Wi-Fi systems on more than 100 commercial aircraft over the next 12 months.

“The first aircraft to be a part of this program, an A321, arrived a few days ago and installation work is already underway,” said Mark Smith, President of STS Aviation Group. “In the coming months, the STS Mod Center team in Melbourne will install Thales Wi-Fi systems on more than 100 aircraft; aircraft that includes models from both Boeing and Airbus.”

It takes the STS Mod Center team about three days to complete the nose-to-tail installation of a Thales Wi-Fi system on narrowbody aircraft and about four-to-six days when working on widebody aircraft.

“Between three and six days is our target turnaround time for every aircraft Wi-Fi installation package that we do,” said Chris Smeets, Senior Vice President & General Manager of STS Mod Center. “And in my experience, we’ve almost never missed that target thanks to the incredibly efficient work-flow system and quality audit processes we have in place at our Melbourne facility.”

STS Aviation Services Creates 60 Jobs in Birmingham to Support Aircraft Conversion Work

Boeing Names STS Aviation Services in Birmingham as Key Wedgetail Supplier

BIRMINGHAM, September 30, 2020 — STS Aviation Services, a division of STS Aviation Group and a leading aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) provider to the global aviation industry, has hired 60 aircraft maintenance professionals in Birmingham to support conversion work on the United Kingdom’s fleet of Wedgetail Airborne Early Warning (AEW) MK1 aircraft.

“We are committed to hiring locally for this project, and so far the response has been incredible,” said Imogen Day, Director of Human Resources for STS Aviation Services in the United Kingdom. “Over the next few months we will hire approximately 50 more people to support the required conversion work, and we are also in the early stages of creating internship opportunities and apprenticeship programmes as our team looks to partner with educational institutions in and around the West Midlands.”

More than half of the 30 Boeing employees who will be based in Birmingham are already on site alongside their STS colleagues as preparation work ramps up this year. These Birmingham-based employees will join the 50 Boeing employees already working on the Wedgetail programme throughout the UK.

The Wedgetail conversion programme was recently awarded to STS Aviation Services by Boeing and it will call upon both STS and Boeing teams to transform multiple 737 Next Generation aircraft into a modern airborne battle management fleet. The new Wedgetails will protect the UK through tracking airborne and maritime threats and directing fighter jets and warships. Work for this project will be carried out at STS Aviation Services’ expanding, state-of-the-art aircraft maintenance facility located at Birmingham Airport (BHX).

“Our team’s commitment to source local candidates, particularly during a pandemic and at such a difficult time, gives me a great sense of pride” said Mick Adams, Senior Vice President and CEO of STS Aviation Services. “Not only does this conversion programme balance our company’s portfolio perfectly, it will soon give many people in the West Midlands expanded opportunities for apprenticeships, internships and full-time jobs at our Birmingham Airport facility.”

STS Aviation Services is promoting careers associated with the Wedgetail conversion programme on its online jobs board. Those interested in being considered for a position are encouraged to learn more and apply online directly. Candidates are also welcome to send CVs to recruitment@stsaviationservices.com.

STS Aviation Services Grows C Check Services Team; Expands Airbus Tooling

C Check Services in Melbourne, Florida (1)

MELBOURNE, August 24, 2020 — STS Aviation Services, a division of STS Aviation Group and a leading aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) provider to the global aviation industry, grows its C check services team and expands its Airbus tooling as work ramps up inside of its base maintenance facility in Melbourne, Florida.

“We are beginning to see more and more commercial aircraft come out of storage,” said Mark Smith, President of STS Aviation Group. “When that happens, a C Check is often required before an aircraft can return to service. Right now, our team in Melbourne is turning C Checks over very quickly, and that spells immediate revenue for our commercial clients who are all eager to get their aircraft back in the sky as soon as possible.”

According to domestic air travel data points provided by the TSA and recently published by Forbes, a typical day in August of 2019 saw 2.5 million passengers take to the skies. On August 23, 2020, however, that number rested at 841,806. And while a 66% reduction in year-over-year traffic is nowhere near a return to normal, that percentage is far better now than it was in April of 2020 when domestic air travel was experiencing, on average, a 95% reduction in passenger traffic.

“I am so proud of the work our Melbourne team is doing right now,” said Shane King, Vice President of STS Aviation Group. “Over the past few months this crew has exhibited a level of resilience worthy of praise. Their collective ability to rise above the looming uncertainty caused by COVID-19 to become a crucial cog in the wings of recovery for the commercial aviation industry has been remarkable to witness.”

Over the past four weeks, STS Aviation Services has added 15 new members to its aircraft maintenance team in Melbourne, and that team just accepted a C check A319, a project that is already putting its newly expanded Airbus tooling to good use.

Boeing Names STS Aviation Services as Key Wedgetail Supplier

Boeing Names STS Aviation Services in Birmingham as Key Wedgetail Supplier

LONDON, May 20, 2020 – Boeing [NYSE: BA] has selected STS Aviation Services and its Birmingham site for the conversion work on the United Kingdom’s fleet of five Wedgetail Airborne Early Warning (AEW) Mk1 aircraft.

The conversion work – turning commercial 737 Next Generation airliners into a modern airborne battle management fleet – will create more than 100 highly skilled jobs: 90 with STS Aviation Services and 30 more with Boeing. The Birmingham-based employees will join the 50 Boeing employees already working on the Wedgetail programme throughout the UK, including at Bristol, Yeovil and RAF Waddington. The new work will be done at the hangar formerly operated by Monarch Aircraft Engineering at Birmingham Airport.

The Royal Air Force (RAF) announced in March 2019 a contract for five Wedgetail aircraft, guaranteeing the UK the world’s most effective AEW&C aircraft at a fixed price. The Wedgetail’s advanced radar and 10 state-of-the-art mission crew consoles can track airborne and maritime targets simultaneously, allowing crews to direct offensive and defensive forces while maintaining continuous surveillance of an operational area.

The Wedgetail is a proven aircraft that is currently in service around the world, including by Royal Australian Air Force, which used the aircraft on operations in the battle against Daesh in Iraq and Syria. It has been continuously improved since its inception, and it is the most capable aircraft of its type.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with STS Aviation Services in Birmingham on the Wedgetail,” said Anna Keeling, managing director of Boeing Defence UK. “Wedgetail will provide the UK with the most advanced and reliable aircraft of its type in the world at a fixed price, and this work will provide good jobs for the many skilled aerospace engineers and mechanics in and around Birmingham.”

Boeing and STS Aviation Services, which also operates a facility in Newquay in Cornwall, have already started recruiting in key areas for the new work in Birmingham.

“Being awarded this contract is not only great news for STS Aviation Services and Boeing, it’s also great news for the Birmingham region, and a much-needed jolt for UK aviation,” said Mick Adams, senior vice president and CEO of STS Aviation Services. “We have a long and favourable history working with Boeing, and we’re excited that this work will be completed at our new state-of-the-art aircraft maintenance facility in Birmingham.”

The first two US-based aircraft have been stripped to their frames and will arrive in the UK later this year. The first Wedgetail will be delivered to the RAF in 2023 and will based at RAF Waddington in Lincolnshire. STS Aviation Services joins other UK suppliers on the programme: Leonardo, which will deliver an integrated Defensive Aids System from its operation in Luton, and Ridge architects, which is working with Boeing to design the facility that will house the Wedgetail fleet there.

The work was previously announced for Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group. Marshall remains a valued supplier to Boeing and the two companies will continue their partnership on other programmes like the P-8.

Boeing’s command-and-control aircraft expertise began in 1977, when it first modified a 707 aircraft for the United States. With the Wedgetail, the RAF will join an AEW&C fleet of 14 aircraft in operation around the world with the Republic of Korea Air Force, Royal Australian Air Force and Turkish Air Force.
