Vallair, the mature aircraft and engine asset specialist, has closed the sale of a V2500-A5 engine to Sojitz Aerospace. The engine was previously flying on MSN974, an Airbus A321 which Vallair purchased from Aercap and leased to Onur Air. The run-out engine will now be dismantled for Sojitz Aerospace. Vallair continue to lease the airframe only to Onur Air.
The engine was delivered to Sojitz Aerospace in December and forms part of an ongoing partnership which has seen Vallair sell three engines for disassembly into the Sojitz Aerospace parts pool with more in the pipeline for 2019. The V2500 engine type is installed on half of Vallair’s A321 fleet, and unserviceable or run-out engines currently transition to third party shops for repair to support the fleet ongoing, or get sold for tear down.Email Post to a Friend
