West Star Aviation has acquired a Complete Ship Set of Challenger 601 Landing Gear to reduce downtime and accommodate operator specific schedules.  The landing gear will be available on a loaner/rental/exchange basis through West Star’s Grand Junction, CO (GJT) Accessory Shop.

The new program gives an operator a variety of options to choose from when they use West Star Aviation for their landing gear services. “Exchange” is offered to operators who prefer to have quick, seamless turn-around with minimum downtime. “Rental” landing gear will be offered for those operators who prefer to send their landing gear to GJT.  Rental landing gear will be offered at a fixed rate for the duration of the operator’s landing gear restoration. To further reduce downtime and restoration costs, WSA will continuously support extended lead time repairs with Loaner/Rental options to accommodate specific operator schedules.

“This new program will also provide a solution for operators who would like to have their aircrafts painted during a gear restoration,” says Steve Goede, Accessories Program Manager, West Star Aviation. “The complete ship set will allow for simultaneous aircraft painting and restoration to cut downtime in half.”
