C&L Aerospace has acquired an Embraer Legacy 500 inventory consisting of parts from a teardown project where the aircraft had very low time and cycles. All parts from the aircraft will be stocked in C&L's 27,000 sq. ft. warehouse location in Bangor, Maine.
The inventory totals over 1,100 line items and covers everything from control surfaces to avionics, landing gear and other rotables and structural components. Many of the parts will be tagged and ready for immediate sale or exchange.
“This is an exciting step here at C&L," says Brad Vieux, director of business development, for C&L Aerospace. “We've built our existing Challenger, Hawker and Beechjet parts business on a fast and transparent quoting system, quick and seamless delivery, and fair pricing.”
This inventory acquisition is part of a major investment in the company's parts business, which in 2021 included 15 aircraft teardown projects including nine ERJ 145 aircraft the company purchased from a European based operator and a multi-million dollar ATR spare parts purchase made by the company.
The Legacy 500 parts will be inspected and made ready for sale, which includes photographing and barcoding each part and corresponding documentation, which is sent as viewable links on all customer quotes allowing more transparency for the customer during the buying process.
