STS Aviation Services (STS), an MRO provider to the global aviation industry, has become AS9110C certified in the United Kingdom (UK). This certification grants STS Aviation Services the authority to maintain, repair and overhaul both civilian and military aircraft in accordance with aerospace law and global regulatory requirements.
The company recently entered the MRO market in the UK after acquiring Apple Aviation and purchasing the former MAEL base maintenance facility in Birmingham. STS Aviation Services considers this AS9110C accreditation a “significant signal of progress and a great indicator for what’s to come”.
Mike Ainsworth, head of safety and compliance for STS Aviation Services stated, “Gaining this international accreditation for our Quality Management Systems was extremely important to this team. Now we can press forward with the strategic initiatives we have in place to become the go-to provider for MRO services throughout the UK.”
With this AS9110C accreditation, global operators in need of airframe and OEM services in the UK can use the company for base maintenance and aircraft modification programme requirements.
Kevin Dudley, chief commercial officer for STS Aviation Services added, “Compliance and airworthiness standards are in this company’s DNA. And while remaining agile, we have established a process-oriented and customer-centric core structure. The AS9110C accreditation underpins that structure and serves as the foundation for our team’s ability to deliver quality and efficiency to its growing customer base.”
