BANGOR, Maine – C&L Aerospace, a C&L Aviation Group company, has purchased an ATR72-500 (ATR72-212A) which is currently being disassembled, making parts available for sale or exchange around the globe. Parts from this aircraft (MSN 0743) will join the more than 132,000 other ATR line items in C&L’s warehouse around the globe, where a unique cataloging process makes purchasing transparent and seamless for customers.
Notable highlights from this teardown include two engines currently at Pratt & Whitney Canada, Plant 5 being overhauled and upgraded to PW127M/PH5 and a Dummy Landing Gear Shipset. These items will be for lease, exchange, or sale shortly.
“C&L has been investing in the ATR business for a few years now,” said Warrick Hood, Senior Vice President at C&L Aerospace. “We support operators from the radome to the tailcone and are not limited to flight controls, leading edges, engines, but cover a wide portfolio of rotables, consumables, expendables, and insurables.
Recently, C&L purchased and disassembled five ATR72-212 aircraft and recently employed Warrick Hood to oversee the ATR program.
Like all of C&L’s inventory, these parts will be thoroughly inspected and processed through C&L’s Repair/Overhaul Department before going through a detailed cataloging process that makes purchases faster, easier and more transparent for the customer. Each part along with its documentation is photographed and barcoded into an electronic location system, which allows them to be sent as viewable links on all customer quotes.
