Melbourne, Fla., March 19, 2021 – STS Mod Center, a global leader in aircraft maintenance and modification services, receives the FAA Diamond Award from the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Federal Aviation Administration for its continued commitment to aircraft maintenance training and safety.

This award reflects that, and I’m proud of our team for rallying together and working hard to bring this award home for the fourth consecutive year.
