SPI to manage donation of multiple jet engines from Cadence Business Finance to aircraft mechanic training programs

General Electric CF34 jet engine

On behalf of Cadence Business Finance (CBF), Sage-Popovich (SPI) will be coordinating the donation of multiple CF34 and ALF 502 engines to aviation mechanic schools. Nick Popovich, the company Chairman, has always supported the aviation learning community. When it came time to clear these engines out of storage, the CBF team generously offered them up for donation to any aircraft mechanic school for training purposes.

The General Electric CF34 is a turbofan jet engine used on a number of business and regional jets, including the Bombardier Challenger and CRJ series, the Embraer E-Jets, and the Comac ARJ21. First manufactured in 1982, the engine family is in greater demand today than ever before. The engines are currently used around the globe on both military and civilian aircraft operated by SkyWest Airlines, United Airlines, Republic Airlines, Uganda National Airlines Company and more.

The ALF 502 engines were first produced in 1980 by Lycoming Engines, then AlliedSignal, and then Honeywell Aerospace. They are geared turbofan engines used on early Bombardier Challenger 600 (1A11) series and on Northrop YA-9 and British Aerospace 146 aircraft.
