 - March 30, 2009, 10:28 AM

Pentastar Aviation was recently issued FAR 145 Repair Station Airframe Class 3 and 4 ratings. The FAA ratings replace the company’s previous limited airframe ratings and authorize Pentastar’s FAR 145 repair station to maintain all models of small and large aircraft of all metal construction.

“These ratings enable our maintenance staff to support additional makes and models
of aircraft as well as expand our service capabilities for the many transient aircraft coming through our facility whenever there is a need for maintenance,” said Gary Roberts, director of quality control. “These ratings are a great advantage to Pentastar and a great benefit for our customers.”

Issuance of the ratings was based upon the company’s ability to demonstrate it has met the required FAA experience, personnel and organizational qualifications.
