West Star Aviation
Strong Heritage. Stronger Future.

In the past 12 months, how many times have you heard someone say, “It’s a supply chain issue.”  Unfortunately, these days that phrase is often true.  Aviation businesses of all sizes are being affected, or rather limited, by their ability to procure materials, products, parts and more.  West Star is no exception.

However, where West Star Aviation is the exception is what we are doing to lessen these disruptions to our customers.  For example, West Star is leveraging our buying power to negotiate strategic “bulk buys” with avionics and airframe manufacturers like Bombardier, Gulfstream, Dassault, Gogo, Honeywell, Collins, and more.  

Additionally, West Star has allocated additional inventory investments to increase our min/max inventory levels in order to hold an even greater amount of inventory at our sites. We will continue to add support to our operations to make certain that we are managing our supply chains effectively on a daily basis.  

Finally, West Star Aviation’s affiliates are well positioned to assist our efforts in combatting supply chain issues in the near term.  For example, Avant Aerospace continues to grow their extensive inventory of rotable and piece parts and Dallas Aeronautical Services is working overtime to complete composite assembly and structural repairs on shorter notice and with quicker turn times for their customers.  

I want to reassure our customers that West Star is up for the challenges of today. We remain eager to earn your business and, more importantly, to earn your trust now and into the future.
