West Star Aviation is standing up an authorized Embraer base maintenance facility at its Chattanooga, Tennessee facility with the addition of a leased 19,200-sq-ft hangar and a 7,000-sq-ft back shop. New LED lighting, fall protection, and remodeled office and lounge space are some of the features of the revamped facility. A fuel farm tank also has been added.

“We are delighted to be able to offer this upgraded additional hangar and shop space, providing our team and customers with the much-needed area to service even more aircraft and specifically for our Embraer customers,” said West Star Chattanooga general manager Steve Goede. “As an authorized Embraer base maintenance facility, the new space is a welcome addition for our Embraer operators.”

The dedicated Embraer facility is part of a larger expansion by West Star in Chattanooga, where it has started construction on more hangar and office space. When complete in June 2023, West Star will have a footprint encompassing 256,828 sq ft at the Tennessee airport.
