Aviall Signs An Agreement On GE CF6-80A Engines

Expands Worldwide Parts Distribution Capabilities

Boeing subsidiary Aviall has signed an agreement with GE Aviation to acquire up to 36 CF6-80A engines powering the Boeing 767 and Airbus A310. The ownership transfer builds on an exclusive distributor agreement launched in 2005, under which Aviall is responsible for forecasting, ordering and delivering all genuine original equipment manufacturer (OEM) replacement parts unique to CF6-80A engines, further expanding Aviall's worldwide part distribution capabilities.

"The addition of used-serviceable materials (USM) support for the GE CF6-80A will greatly benefit the end customer," said Sheena Mitchell, Aviall vice president, Commercial Engine & Rotor-Wing Programs. "This continued expansion of our relationship with GE, in conjunction with the extension of offerings for the CF6-80A program, will help us further extend the depth of service we are able to offer."

Powering the Boeing 767 and Airbus A310, the CF6-80A has accumulated more than 200 million hours since entering into service in 1982. GE's CF6 engines are among the most utilized and reliable in the industry. Powering more than 10 models of wide-body aircraft, the engine family has established an unparalleled record of reliability for more than 40 years with more than 400 million flight-hours in service with more than 250 operators worldwide.
