Part-out activity has commenced this month in Marana, Arizona for two A319-132 airframes recently acquired by APOC Aviation. MSN 1758 and 1790 were formerly operated by Air Macau and the parts are expected to arrive into APOC’s stock during April/May.
All of the harvested A319 parts will be assessed, and then APOC’s audited group of US repair stations will return the stock to serviceable status prior to shipment back to the Rotterdam warehouse, to form part of the company’s rapidly expanding inventory of spares for sale and lease.
APOC also negotiated the sale of a recently purchased 1999 vintage A321-211 to an undisclosed European operator. “This aircraft was acquired from the Thomas Cook bankruptcy for a further planned APOC part-out. However, due to the high demand for A321s and because of the MAX groundings, the onward sale and return to active service was a calculated decision,” stated Jasper van den Boogaard, VP Airframe Acquisition & Trading at APOC Aviation.Email Post to a Friend
