Vallair Purchases Four CFM56-5A Engines From Air France

Engines To Be Parted Out And Sold

Aircraft trading, leasing and specialist MRO organization Vallair has purchased four CFM56-5A engines from the French flag carrier Air France. The engines will be torn down at Vallair’s engine facility in Chateauroux, France.

Vallair recently added to its capabilities by setting up a fully-equipped, multi-bay engine strip and ‘hospital’ workscope operation to support its customers’ engine requirements and help reduce direct maintenance costs and downtime. This facility, located within Vallair’s Disassembly & Logistics centre in Chateauroux, is now fully operational and offers a comprehensive service including full teardown of engines, module disassembly and reassembly, light repairs, borescope inspections and blending. This transaction marks Vallair’s first comprehensive engine teardown operation in the new facility. All parts including LPT, HPC, HPT and fan modules will be sold on.

“At Vallair we strive to meet all of our customers’ specific requirements, in line with their economic and operational objectives”, comments Anca Mihalache, Head of Trading & Leasing at Vallair. “We are proud to have expanded our operational capabilities and to be able to offer our customers an enhanced service. Vallair holds a long term commercial partnership with Air France and we are pleased to have completed another successful transaction with them.”

“The Vallair engine MRO facility is dedicated to maximising the life and value of aircraft engines whilst providing customised solutions to customers and ensuring they are equipped to achieve the best results with their assets”, says Matthew Eales, Engine Business Unit & Operations Manager. “With sound logistics, fully trained teardown technicians and ample storage, the new engine facility in Chateauroux is up and running and ready to support the steady increase in engine throughput.”
