Aventure Aviation has acquired another Boeing 757-200 airframe, MSN 27971 . This is Aventure’s second 757 purchase in the last few months, and comes on the heels of their purchase of MSN 27208. The airframe is currently stored in Goodyear, Arizona at Aersale.
The aircraft, last operated by Air Astana, is currently equipped with a half-life serviceable APU, 7+ years of green time remaining on heavy-weight landing gear, as well as RB211 nacelles that have had the FAA AD modification installed by the OEM back in 2018. The airframe is considered one of the best conversion candidates on the market and there are discussions with some smaller operators to put this back into service.
"The covid crisis has caused the cargo market to boom, and the Boeing 757 is a key component of the world’s cargo fleet. Based on current flight data, we have also noticed that nearly all of Delta’s and United’s 757s fleet have also come back into service. As a result, we are seeing strong demand of aircraft parts from both airlines and freight carriers to support their operations." said Aventure Vice President, Talha Faruqi
"We continue to see interesting opportunities to purchase aircraft for conversion and part-out," Mr. Faruqi added. “As the commercial aviation industry continues to struggle, operators and leasing companies are searching for reputable companies that are willing to step-up and take on their surplus aircraft. Aventure has the financing and capabilities to purchase these assets.
Aventure is also presently considering the acquisition of several other Airbus, Boeing and Bombardier aircraft, focusing on end-of-life aircraft for dismantling and conversion purposes.
