AeroVision International (Muskegon, Michigan) has signed an agreement with a major U.S. based operator to provide asset optimization services for an undisclosed quantity of Embraer ERJ-135 aircraft being removed from active revenue passenger service. AeroVision will manage the ERJ assets on behalf of the carrier, either to disassemble for spare parts or to return to service.
Several of the ERJ-135 aircraft have already been inducted into the reduce to spares process, with desirable parts being routed to repair facilities and ultimately offered for sale to the ERJ MRO and operator marketplace. AeroVision is providing on-site personnel to supervise the aircraft disassembly process and the subsequent packaging and shipment to its Muskegon, Michigan parts warehouse, ensuring the carrier’s assets are secure and that the process is completed quickly. The disassembly of these aircraft will bring AeroVision’s total disassembled Embraer ERJ family aircraft count to 31, making it the largest non-OEM source of ERJ serviceable material in the world.
