Top Shops 2022 Winners

We are pleased to announce this year’s winners of the 145 Top Shop Awards. It was another banner year for the awards, with a total of 16,337 votes submitted in twenty-five different repair categories. Two repair categories, Best Heat Transfer Repair and Best In-Flight Entertainment Systems Repair, ended with two companies each tying for the win. The most contested repair category this year was for the Best Accessories Class I, II and III Repair with a total of 1,727 votes submitted. Finally, the closest win was for the Best Hydraulics Repair category with a razor thin margin of just three votes.


On behalf of The 145, and all the repair centers, we want to thank everyone that participated by submitting votes. Without your votes there wouldn’t be a 145 Top Shop Awards, so thank you for your support. We also want to congratulate this year’s winners. If you’re a Top Shop you must be doing something right, so keep up the good work!
