West Star Aviation has been granted “No-Program Notification Letter” (PNL) privileges that expands its ability to issue, amend, or reissue STCs. Under West Star’s organization designation authorization (ODA), the newest privileges enable all four of its main locations to complete projects without submittal of a PNL letter.
The No-PNL includes projects involving FMS, CVR, FANS, Iridium DLU, and Conquest RVSM. "This is a very beneficial addition to our ODA delegation," said Jeff Maszkiewicz, West Star’s ODA lead administrator.
West Start provides a range of services from its primary facilities in East Alton, Illinois; Grand Junction, Colorado; Chattanooga, Tennessee; and Perryville, Missouri. These sites are augmented with satellite locations in Aspen, Colorado; Chicago; Denver; Houston; and Minneapolis. Its services cover repair and maintenance of airframes, engines, and APUs, along with avionics installations and repair, major modifications, interior refurbishment, and paint.
