West Star Aviation is nearing completion of construction on a new 60,000 ft² hangar at its East Alton, IL (ALN) location. This hangar is anticipated to be operational by the end of fourth quarter of 2018.

The hangar features 40,000 ft² of hangar space and 20,000 ft² of back shop and office space and will support West Star’s growing capabilities allowing the company to fully expand existing aircraft maintenance programs. This planned growth will employ an additional 28 technicians to support the expansion, in addition to their existing hiring efforts.

“We are pleased to expand our East Alton facility. With this hangar, we occupy over 380,000 ft² of hangar and shop space at St. Louis Regional Airport,” said Scott Sweeney, General Manager, West Star Aviation. “Having a new hangar provides us the necessary capacity to continue offering world-class service to our customers and ensure we meet scheduled deadlines,” Sweeney continued.
