Vallair, the mature asset specialist, has purchased two A320 aircraft from Aviation Capital Group (ACG) for teardown. The aircraft (MSN 2372 and MSN 2393) are both 2005 vintage and the airframes will be dismantled at Vallair’s facility in Montpellier, France.
According to Armando Filho, Material Management Director, “Both A320s are currently stored in Montpellier and will be processed at the end of the year with parts available in Q1 of 2023. The multiplicity of components will significantly enhance our stock of freshly tagged, modern narrow-body parts. Our inventory has already been boosted by the recent teardown of an A321, MSN 1008, and these two airframes will further sustain our strategy to build a high-quality spares hub in France. We are fully committed to supporting this aircraft type for airlines, lessors and asset managers” says Filho.
To support Vallair’s asset procurement process, intelligent repair management is combined with an integrated supply chain and global network of audited MRO facilities. This provides a streamlined service for Vallair’s material management team which is closely aligned to the teardown function and processes high volumes of aircraft parts every month, working with the in-house aero-structures repair shop based in Châteauroux.
