Speaking about the project, Atlantic Aviation Group’s Engineer Manager, Colm Carty said, “Effective planning and good communication was vital for a modification of this size and scale. We worked collaboratively with Star Air, Rockwell Collins, Boeing and L2 Aviation throughout two-year project duration.”

“Star Air has a long-standing relationship with Atlantic Aviation Group built up over 20 years” said Steffen Vagt-Andersen, Star Air Planning Manager. “Delivering a project of this size and diversity on time was down to the quality of the staff working the modifications and the excellent pre-planning by the company. Trust, technical expertise and proven ability were key factors in our decision to work with Atlantic Aviation Group on this project.”
