Aventure Aviation has acquired a Boeing 757-200, MSN 25073 for teardown. The dismantling will commence this week in Tucson, Arizona. This specific aircraft was selected for its condition, age, and low times and cycles over several other B757s that were shortlisted for purchase.
“Our aim has always been to supply quality after-market parts with full trace and useful remaining life,” said Aventure's Senior Vice President, Amyr Qureshi. “We tediously reviewed all technical records and selected this 757 to be the most ideal candidate for the teardown,” continued Mr. Qureshi, who thoroughly inspected the aircraft in Tuscon. “This purchase is a further testament to the continued support for our global customers who operate Boeing 757s and 767s in their fleet due to the commonality between the two types,” Qureshi added.
All harvested parts will be inspected on-site, and shipped from Tuscon to Aventure's main facilities in Peachtree City, Georgia, USA, located near Atlanta's Hartfield-Jackson International Airport.
“Our last Boeing teardown was a 767-300,” said Melissa-Coleman Grina, Aventure's Senior Director of Sales. “With our new 757 acquisition, our Boeing parts inventory will increase and be an even more extensive resource for our customers,” she continued.
Once refurbished, the harvested parts will soon be available to end users on exchange as well as outright basis. Aventure is also considering the acquisition of several other Airbus and Boeing aircraft, focusing towards more end-of-life aircraft for dismantling purposes.
