Flightstar Completes 1,000th Engine
Change on Embraer 145 Series
Flightstar Corporation, an MRO based at Willard Airport (KCMI) since 1978, has
recently changed their 1000th Rolls-Royce AE 3007 engine on an Embraer 145
series aircraft. Flightstar added more capabilities to its overnight airline maintenance
program in 2008 with its first Rolls-Royce AE 3007 engine replacement on an
Embraer 145 series aircraft. These maintenance functions have continued over the
last 14 years and have recently hit a milestone of 1,000 engine changes performed.
A majority of these events happen in a singular overnight shift, allowing aircraft to
return for regularly scheduled airline service the following morning with no interruption
to the scheduled flight. " Considering our ability to change one engine in
a single shift and the number of engines that have been changed speaks volumes
to the experience, aptitude, and determination of our employees, " said Flightstar
Airline Division Manager Steve Warns. " I hope they all, past and present, are as
proud of this milestone as I am. "
