West Star Aviation receives Cessna approval as an authorised independent NDI facility


West Star Aviation’s Chattanooga facility has received Cessna approval as an authorised independent Nondestructive Inspection (NDI) facility.

This approval allows West Star to perform Nondestructive Testing and Inspections (NDT) requirements on Cessna models, as well as access to documentation and the required standards/kits needed to perform this work. This approval is in addition to a wide-variety of approvals and capabilities West Star currently has to service Cessna aircraft, which extend beyond being an authorised Citation jet service centre for aircraft maintenance and warranty provider.

“We are proud of this approval as it continues our long-standing growth and support of maintenance on Cessna aircraft. Being an independent NDI facility allows us to perform NDT services in-house at Chattanooga which will help us potentially decrease downtime and cost for customers,” said Thomas Hilboldt, General Manager, West Star Aviation.
