Next Level Aviation (NLA) has launched what they are called a “game-changing used serviceable material (USM) partnership program,” Next Level USM.
In the post-COVID commercial aviation operating environment, OEMs, airlines, leasing companies, and MROs are seeking significant maintenance and spare parts cost savings wherever possible, while also looking to maximize the value of surplus spare parts inventories to provide additional working capital as needed.
The Next Level USM partnership program was designed and engineered by Next Level Aviation to be streamlined, cost-saving and revenue generating. Next Level will act as a single used serviceable material (USM) point of contact and will deliver significant value to its partners on both the buy side, through their spare parts requirements, and on the sell side, when the partner is looking to increase liquidity through the sale of surplus or under-utilized spare parts inventories.
Highlights of the Next Level USM partnership program include:
· Access to Next Level Aviation’s market leading USM valuation expertise
· NLA’s unmatched in-house repair management expertise
· Flexible transaction types – consignments, outright sales/purchases, exchanges, component/asset leasing.
· Program offered on USM parts & inventories for all Boeing and Airbus commercial aircraft platforms, as well as their associated jet engines
· Quick buy/sell decisions by Next Level AviationTM
· Potential volume-based purchasing rebates
· Nose to tail USM support
