C&L will embed staff at AVIAN's facility located in Orlando, Florida, where the inventory is located. From there, parts will be packaged and shipped to operators all over the globe. Meanwhile Kristina Snow joins the team.

C&L Aerospace has signed an agreement with AVIAN Inventory Management to assist in marketing and selling inventory consisting of 85,000 individual part numbers and over 18 million total parts, spanning several Embraer aircraft types including the ERJ 145, E170, E190, E-Jet, E120, Legacy, Phenom and Praetor.

“AVIAN recognised C&L's ability to effectively sell and distribute this inventory all over the world, utilising our global sales team,” says Chris Kilgour, CEO of C&L Aviation Group. “Our global market reach and years of product experience, combined with experienced technical sales professionals make us an ideal partner for AVIAN.”

Meanwhile AVIAN recently closed on the acquisition of four serviceable General Electric CF34-10E turbofan engines.

The engines are 20,000 pound thrust class, powering Embraer E 190/195 and Lineage 1000 commercial and business aircraft and are offered to the market from AVIAN's Orlando, Florida-based 72,000 sq ft global OEM aircraft parts distribution centre.

Ian Gurekian, founder and CEO, AVIAN Inventory Management comments: “We are very proud to announce that AVIAN has further expanded the breadth of our customer-focused platform to include the acquisition and trading capabilities of modern, in-demand jet engines. These first engines complement our ability to keep Embraer's fleet flying reliably throughout the world via our available inventory and now these powerplants. We look forward to expanding our footprint in this space in the near-term.”

All four engines and full QECs are immediately available for inspection and sale.

C&L Aerospace has also added Kristina Snow as strategic inventory sales manager. Snow will lead sales and marketing activities in partnership with AVIAN Inventory Management (AVIAN). She will be providing customer support, focusing on ERJ 145, E170, E190, E-Jet, E120, Legacy, Phenom and Praetor.

“Kristina is well known in the industry, and her background in aircraft parts management and sales makes her a great asset to the C&L team,” says Martin Cooper, senior vice president of sales at C&L Aerospace. “We look forward to the knowledge and experience Kristina will bring as we continue to expand our global market reach.”

Snow has over a decade of experience in the commercial and regional aviation market, previously holding positions at Worthington Aviation as regional jet programme director and Regional One, Inc. as CF34 product line manager.

Snow is based in Tennessee.
