STS Mod Center Receives FAA Diamond Award for Fourth Consecutive Year

FAA Diamond Award

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 is the fourth year in a row STS Mod Center has received the award.

“The promotion of safety through regular and ongoing training is central to our company’s success,” says Mark Smith, Group President of STS Mod Center. “To receive this award means 100% participation from our entire staff, and that’s hundreds of people rallying around the company’s core cultural values and training methods year in and year out.”

In order to be considered for the award, STS Mod Center enrolled itself into the FAA FAAST program; a program designed to promote safer skies through the ongoing training and education of Aircraft Maintenance Technicians. To receive the award, every touch labor specialist employed by STS Mod Center 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 aircraft for a living,” says David MacKinnon, Director of Quality and Compliance for STS Mod Center “That’s a responsibility and a privilege we take seriously. 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. This accomplishment means a lot to us as an organization, but knowing that safety rests at the heart of everything we do means a great deal more to our customers and the people who depend on us to fly safely.”

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

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 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.
