C&L Aerospace has purchased nine ERJ 145 aircraft from a European-based operator for teardown. The package consists of nine complete ERJ 145 aircraft and 14 AE3007 Rolls Royce Engines. All aircraft are located in Clermont-Ferrand, France, where they are currently being torn down, with expected completion in October of 2021. Parts from these aircraft will be located at C&L’s global warehouses, with the majority being stored at the company’s main headquarters in Bangor, Maine.
“C&L has been investing in our ERJ 135/145 program for many years now,” said Warrick Hood, senior vice president, C&L Aerospace. “We support operators around the world in a variety of ways including spare parts supply and exchanges to power-by-the-hour programs and consignment inventories. Having parts available on-site at our MRO facility in Maine is a huge benefit for our ERJ maintenance customers as well.”
C&L says these parts will be inspected and made ready for sale, which includes photographing and barcoding each part and corresponding documentation which is sent as viewable links on all customer quotes allowing more transparency for the customer during the buying process.
