“Fresh from performance restoration, this high-demand engine will go straight to lease”  says Patrick Leopold, Director Asset Management – Vallair

Luxembourg – 20th March 2024Vallair, the mature asset specialist, has completed the sale of a CFM56-5B3/P engine, (serial number 779740), to an undisclosed customer.  Fresh from performance restoration with full life remaining at -5B3 thrust level, the engine is a perfect candidate for lease across the A320 family of aircraft.

“The demand for this engine type is strong and steadily increasing due to very high engine shop visit demand, current limited engine shop availability, long turnaround times, and labour shortages among other factors. This newly overhauled engine, with full operational capability across all thrust levels will be put on lease,” says Patrick Leopold, Director of Asset Management at Vallair.

Vallair ASSETS is currently focused on the acquisition of airframes and aircraft predominantly for teardown which will be managed by their experienced engineers at Vallair’s own specialist facilities in Châteauroux and Montpellier in France.   The Company has recently opened a new engines teardown facility for CFM56 types in Châteauroux.  This streamlined service is co-located with the narrowbody aircraft disassembly facilities and designed to generate maximum value for mature assets, delivering the highest value for customers.
