West Star Aviation announced the completion of their new Grand Junction paint facility at their Grand Junction, CO (GJT) location. The new facility is 41,000 sq. feet and features two bays: one for strip, sand and priming, the other is a state of the art downdraft bay. Each bay is 120 feet wide and will be able to accommodate aircraft as large as a Global 7000 or a Gulfstream 650. The first aircraft is scheduled for the new facility June 15th, 2015.

The new facility is self contained with clean rooms, flight control balance room, paint storage and mixing area; all of the support functions needed under one roof. In addition, the facility is environmentally friendly and will recycle any products possible. State of the art vari-drive compressors, which are extremely efficient, supply compressed air to the facility, and the new building has substantial insulation, saving energy during winter months and paint bake cycles.

“We already have a full service paint shop here capable of accommodating aircraft as large as a Challenger 604, we just needed more capacity and the ability to paint the larger corporate aircraft,” says Dave Krogman, General Manager, GJT. “The new facility will further position our Grand Junction location as one of the nation’s premier paint facilities for aircraft of all sizes and we are excited about its completion.”
