Boeing Launches Nacelle and Flight Control Exchange Program at MRO Middle East

Boeing launched its new Nacelle and Flight-Control Surface Exchange Program on the first day of MRO Middle East, 8-9 February, Dubai, UAE.

The program lets customers exchange nacelle and flight-control surface parts that need repair or overhaul from a certified pool that Boeing maintains throughout its global network. It takes away the need for customers to contract, schedule, manage and own or lease these parts.

“Our customers have asked for more flexibility and we’ve heard them,” said Lynne Hopper, vice president of Parts Solutions, Boeing Commercial Aviation Services.

Parts distributed through the program represent all Boeing models and are updated to the latest configurations, incorporating all applicable service bulletins and airworthiness directives.

Customers only need to take an airplane out of service once, reducing maintenance needs. When a similar part is leased, the plane must be taken out of service for both removal and installation.
