BANGOR, Maine – C&L Aviation Group, has completed and delivered the seventh Saab 340B aircraft, on schedule, to Legends Airways. Legends, which has taken possession of all aircraft, initially received their first aircraft in mid-2021.
There has been a resurgence in interest in the Saab 340 aircraft during this same period, and C&L has sold over twenty Saab 340 aircraft, including the former fleets of JAC and HAC.
“In all my years dealing in the Saab 340 aircraft I have never seen demand for this aircraft at current levels. There has been a distinct increase in demand for the Saab 340B aircraft with both passenger and cargo operators. This has led to most parked Saab aircraft being restored to service,” said Chris Kilgour, CEO of C&L Aviation Group. “With so many customers asking for aircraft and there being low availability, the market dynamics have changed. Demand has outstripped supply, resulting in increased sale prices for the Saab.”
The Saab 340 is a versatile aircraft in either passenger or cargo configuration. That, combined with the aircraft’s superior performance in its class, makes it a popular aircraft for operators around the world.
For over twenty-five years, C&L has been a leader in the aftermarket sale and support of the Saab aircraft. The company stocks Saab inventory in their globally located warehouses and provides a one-stop solution for operators at the MRO facility offering aircraft and engine sales, heavy maintenance, aircraft paint, avionics upgrades, structural modifications, engineering support, and interior refurbishment.
