West Star Aviation Awarded 2023 FAA Diamond Award of Excellence at Multiple Locations

West Star is pleased to announce that several locations in their network have been awarded the FAA Diamond Award of Excellence for 2023, including four of their full-services locations: East Alton, IL (ALN); Chattanooga, TN (CHA); Grand Junction, CO (GJT) and Perryville, MO (PCD).

The Diamond Award is the FAA’s highest achievement for technicians and employers who initiate and sustain highly effective training programs. To qualify for this award, 100% of the AMTs had to participate in specialized training that included safety, technical knowledge, aircraft systems, aviation regulations and FAA rules. Additionally, the technicians completed a minimum of 12 hours of structured FAA training, earning each of them individual awards as well. 

“As West Star grows, training will continue to be our top priority. We have increased our financial investment in training substantially year over year. Training is an investment in our people and our people are my top priority. It’s a great honor to recognize their continued hard work and overall accomplishments,” said Allen McReynolds, COO. “This award also confirms to our customers that West Star’s aircraft technicians are the best in the business and take pride in their work and achievements,” he said.
