GoJet Airlines, a regional carrier based in St. Louis, has announced it received FAA Part 145 certification to operate a large aircraft repair station. The certification allows the carrier to establish a new maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) facility, creating over 150 new jobs in the St. Louis area by October.

“We understand that there are other quality maintenance providers in the market,” GoJet CEO Rick Leach said in a news release. “However, being one of the few Part 121 operators offering this service, and only one of two regional airlines, GoJet now has a unique opportunity.”

The company noted a “growing need for MRO services,” particularly for regional airlines as aircraft return to commercial service from storage programs. GoJet plans to leverage this growth by offering MRO services to regional carriers and others.

“Our offering of this new service not only highlights our dedication to the regional market but should also provide our prospective airline customers with an additional level of comfort and support,” Leach said.

GoJet’s MRO facility will offer specialized maintenance programs, interior and composite capabilities, and aircraft modifications. The company said it emphasizes “efficient turnaround times, quality workmanship, and personalized service.”

The airline said it is actively seeking clients and securing long-term maintenance contracts. GoJet operates a fleet of over 30 CRJ-550 aircraft on behalf of United Express.
