STS Aviation Services: Critical Supplies Now Available

Critical Supplies

STS Aviation Services (STS), a division of STS Aviation Group and a leading MRO provider to the global aviation industry, is 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.”

To order the critical face masks and / or face shields being produced inside of our Canadian facilities, please email: sales@stsaviationgroup.com or call (514) 735-5260.

STS Aviation Services Completes FOMAX Modification Program For easyJet

STS Aviation Services Completes FOMAX Modification Program For easyJet

NEWQUAY, April 22, 2020 — STS Aviation Services (STS), a division of STS Aviation Group and a leading MRO provider to the global aviation industry, announces the completion of its long-running program to implement FOMAX modifications to easyJet’s fleet of aircraft.

Malcolm Welsby, Chief Technical Officer for STS Aviation Services, said “Customer success lies at the core of everything we do here at STS Aviation Services. And when you bring together a leading MRO and an airline focused on efficiency, safety and customer satisfaction, the possibilities to create increased value are endless.”

STS Aviation Services’ deep partnership with easyJet is a great example of what synergy and innovation can yield. Since this partnership began, the company has delivered 39 aircraft with a TDR of 96% based on planned hours. And while aircraft came in for specific tasks, STS Aviation Services was able to ensure that 75% of all easyJet aircraft left its facility with no carry-forward items.

Kevin Dudley, Chief Commercial Officer for STS Aviation Services, said “We’re delighted to have been selected by easyJet to embody this key modification program at our Newquay, Cornwall MRO facility. We have been privileged to work with easyJet in the past on several key projects, but this was by far the most comprehensive given all the nose-to-tail inputs required throughout the 2019/2020 winter season. To have successfully delivered this program on time and on budget demonstrates exactly what STS Aviation Services stands for.”

STS Aviation Services has limited capacity remaining for its winter 2020/2021 program, and global operators looking for comprehensive MRO support are being asked to email sales@stsaviationservices.com.

STS Line Maintenance Receives FAA Diamond Award Two Years in a Row

Jensen Beach, Fla., February 13, 2020 – STS Line Maintenance just received the FAA Diamond Award by the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Federal Aviation Administration for the second year in a row. The award recognizes the company’s commitment to aircraft maintenance training and safety.

“Given the growing size of our Line Maintenance network, this is quite an accomplishment,” says Mark Smith, Group President of STS Line Maintenance. “The promotion of safety through regular and ongoing training has always been a focal point for STS Line Maintenance, but to receive the FAA Diamond 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. Again, quite an accomplishment.”

Back in the early part of 2019, 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 two 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 William Ahern, Director of Quality and Chief Inspector for 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 and working hard to bring this honor home. This award 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 travel on their aircraft.
