APOC has purchased its first CFM56-5b engine for immediate part-out. It is one of a range of engines that the business is sourcing to augment the new spare parts division and will comprise the complete array of components for overhaul including LLPs, fan blades, HPT, and HPC blades. The part-out will be undertaken by GA Telesis and is anticipated to be completed within the month.
“APOC is able to offer A320-family aircraft operators’ customers flexible green-time engine leasing solutions, so we need a range of assets to meet these varying needs” says Anca Mihalache, VP Engine Trading & Leasing. “We already part-out engines that come off-lease as they become un-serviceable, but as a fairly new department we are also buying engines directly for part-out and we have an impressive target for the acquisition and dismantlement of engines over the next five years.”Email Post to a Friend
