September 11, 2019
Pro Star Precision Machining, a subsidiary of Pro Star Aviation, has received Parts Manufacturer Approval (PMA) certificate number PQ10043NE from the FAA. PMA is a design and production approval for the modification and replacement of articles for type certificated parts and products.
This new approval will allow Pro Star Aviation to manufacture certified parts and kits to sell for use on OEM, Special Missions, Commercial, and Government platforms. “Pro Star quickly recognized the need to provide solutions for complex installations and source hard to locate high-cost piece parts for aging aircraft,” stated Sean Peterson, General Manager of Pro Star Aviation. “The ability to bring these capabilities in-house will save our customers time and money and increase the level of quality assurance on parts.”
In addition to selling parts for their own STC’s, Pro Star Aviation will now have the ability to collaborate with organizations that have achieved STC’s but do not have the resources to produce parts or create kits. “We’ve produced low-quantity, specialized piece parts for over 18 years,” stated Brian Cote, President of Pro Star Precision Machining, “Achieving PMA certification will expand our Global Market reach and the ability to offer high-quality aviation parts to reduce time and costs.”
