STS Aviation Group’s CEO Recognized by Florida Trend as One of the Most Influential Business Executives in the Sunshine State

STS Aviation Group’s CEO Named to Florida 500 List

Jensen Beach, Fla., September 23, 2020 – STS Aviation Group’s CEO, Philip Anson Jr., was recently named by Florida Trend as one of the most influential business leaders in the Sunshine State.

This is the second time in three years that Anson has been honored by Florida Trend. In 2018, he was recognized by the publication in its inaugural Florida 500 list.

“I am once again humbled to be recognized alongside such an impressive and noteworthy group of Florida business leaders,” said Anson. “But in many ways, this honor isn’t mine alone. There is no way that I would be in the position that I am in today without the hard work, dedication and loyalty of our employees and business partners, so I’d like to share this honor with them.”

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.

STS Aviation Services Gains AS9110C Accreditation in the United Kingdom

BIRMINGHAM, April 28, 2020 — STS Aviation Services (STS), a division of STS Aviation Group and a leading MRO provider to the global aviation industry, is now AS9110C certified in the United Kingdom.

This certification grants STS Aviation Services the authority to maintain, repair and overhaul both civilian and military aircraft in accordance with aerospace law and global regulatory requirements.

Now we can press forward with the strategic initiatives we have in place to become the go-to provider for MRO services throughout the United Kingdom.”

Having just recently entered the MRO market in the United Kingdom after acquiring Apple Aviation and purchasing the former MAEL base maintenance facility in Birmingham, STS Aviation Services considers this AS9110C accreditation a significant signal of progress and a great indicator for what’s to come.

Kevin Dudley, Chief Commercial Officer for STS Aviation Services, stated “Compliance and airworthiness standards are in this company’s DNA. And while remaining agile, we have established a process-oriented and customer-centric core structure. The AS9110C accreditation underpins that structure and serves as the foundation for our team’s ability to deliver quality and efficiency to its growing customer base.”

Global operators in need of airframe and OEM services in the United Kingdom have keenly awaited this news. In knowing that STS Aviation Services now holds AS9110C accreditation, they have a go-to provider in the region for base maintenance and aircraft modification program requirements.

STS Aviation Services Revamps Canadian MRO Facilities to Manufacture Critical Supplies for COVID-19

Copy of Working together to (1)

MONTREAL, April 23, 2020 — STS Aviation Services (STS), a division of STS Aviation Group and a leading MRO provider to the global aviation industry, has started manufacturing critical supplies at its Canadian AMO repair stations in support of the global COVID-19 pandemic relief effort.  

Non-medical face masks and face shields, medical gowns, scrubs, patient curtains, aircraft seat blockers, aircraft seat cover headrests and office cubicle dividers are now on the production line. The company is also prototyping designs on Hazmat suits, hospital sheets, pillowcases and aircraft in-flight entertainment screen guards.  

Lena Watters, Sr. Vice President & General Manager of STS Aviation Services, said “Now is not the time for our company, or any other company with the means, for that matter, to sit idly on the sidelines in anticipation of a positive outcome. Knowing that we had the capability to produce supplies that are in critical need to the public, we decided to act fast to get prototypes made, tested and re-tested all before flipping our production lines.”

In early March of 2020, STS Aviation Group issued a “work from home” order for all non-essential personnel across its global workforce. In addition, the team executed a meticulous work-safety plan for all essential employees that remained on the job site.

This work-safety plan, as noted by STS Aviation Group’s President, Mark Smith, was a critical component in ensuring the success of this relief effort. Smith said “The safety of our essential employees has always been our primary concern. If they were not healthy and given a sterile and pristine environment to operate in, we would not have been able to lend our support to this global relief effort. In saying that, I am immensely proud of our team’s time, dedication and hard work. They made this possible. Now let us continue that work and get these supplies to those who need it most.”
