GA Telesis (GAT) has signed a global parts distribution agreement with Honeywell for the CFM56-5B Variable Bleed Valve (VBV) stop mechanism. This partnership marks the kick-off for GA Telesis’ Flight Solutions Group
(FSG) to support the new aviation parts markets. The new division within FSG, designated the Distribution Solutions Group (DSG), was created to continue offering more solutions outside of Used Serviceable Material to the global customer base already covered by the FSG team.
This follows the recently announced distribution agreement for the Honeywell UV Cabin System, which expands GAT’s Tarmac Solutions Group’s ability to offer Specialized Tooling and Ground Support Equipment to airlines worldwide.
The newly signed three-year agreement will allow FSG to supply VBVs during shop visits for the CFM56-5B, installed on the A320 family of aircraft. FSG will be the exclusive distributor of this component to customers worldwide, outside of China. GA Telesis Engine Services (GATES),
based in Helsinki, Finland, will also offer installation of the VBV during engine maintenance.
