Aventure Aviation has acquired for teardown a complete Boeing 757-200, MSN 25436, equipped with heavy-weight landing gear with green time. The dismantling will commence next week in Goodyear, Arizona, USA.
This specific former VIM Airlines aircraft was selected over other shortlisted 757s for its condition, age, and low times and cycles. An additional GTCP331-200ER APU and other spares were also included in the acquisition.
"Our aim has always been to supply quality after-market parts with full trace and useful remaining life," said Aventure VP of Operations, Talha Faruqi, who thoroughly inspected the aircraft. "We tediously reviewed all technical records and selected this 757 package, with its heavy-weight gear and extra spares, to be the most ideal addition to our growing portfolio," he continued.
"This purchase further confirms our commitment to our global customers who operate Boeing 757s and 767s, due to the commonality between the two types," Mr. Faruqi added.
All harvested parts will be inspected on-site, and shipped from Arizona to Aventure's main facilities in Peachtree City, Georgia, USA, located near Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
"This acquisition further cements Aventure′s status as the premier 757 spare parts provider," said Melissa-Coleman Grina, Aventure′s Senior Director of Sales.
Once refurbished, the harvested parts will soon be available to end users on an exchange as well as outright basis. Aventure is also presently considering the acquisition of several other Airbus and Boeing aircraft, focusing on end-of-life aircraft for dismantling purposes.
