West Star’s New Landing Gear Shop at GJT

West Star Aviation is housing its landing gear shop in a newly acquired, existing 20,000 square foot facility in Grand Junction, Colorado. It will support Challenger, Hawker, and Embraer Phenom and Legacy landing gear overhaul and repair.

Dave Krogman, general manager, West Star Aviation, said that the move would allow the company to expand its existing operation and anticipated “creating over 40 jobs during the next three years in the Grand Junction area.”

The transformation of the former U.S. Tech facility should be completed by March 2017.
