This full STC again results from the hard work of Star’s recently formed internal STC Group.

Viraf S. Kapadia, Chairman and CEO of Star said, “The granting of this operational STC is further validation of our strategic operational plan. By developing our own internal resources instead of relying on external suppliers, we save time, significantly lower our costs and expand our ability to service our customers in the most efficient way possible. We look forward to serving our first North American customer, Skyservice. In the near future, we hope to be able to enhance the service currently offered by the STAR-A.D.S. system by providing real time monitoring and reporting of critical medical information of patients in air ambulances while in flight. We are excited about the possibilities that we can bring to air ambulance operations, The granting of this certificate can assist us in the penetration of the General Aviation and VIP jets market.”
