APOC Aviation has purchased an A319-111 from SMBC Aviation Capital for tear-down. MSN 3380 was previously operated by Spanish flag-carrier, Iberia, and is the fourth A320 family plane acquired this year. Two are already being parted out in Marana, Arizona, and this particular aircraft is already located at eCube in Wales, awaiting the easing of COVID-19 restrictions before work can begin.
Jasper van den Boogaard, VP Airframe Acquisition & Trading at APOC Aviation, says the Company is focused on securing the right assets. “We’re keen to build our stock of high-quality commercial parts for A320 family aircraft. This is a relatively young aircraft, manufactured in 2008, and we were able to secure the airframe at the right price. Our airline customers will be first in line for this excellent serviceable material.”
Over the next few months, the secured A319 parts will be assessed, and then APOC’s audited group of repair stations worldwide will return the stock to serviceable status. All stock will be located at its Rotterdam warehouse forming part of the Company’s rapidly expanding inventory of spares.Email Post to a Friend
