AeroVision International (Muskegon, Michigan) announces the purchase of an Embraer E190 aircraft, the first acquisition of this type for the company. The 100 seat aircraft was recently removed from active revenue passenger service and was purchased without engines.
The aircraft, which will be disassembled for parts, represents AeroVision’s entry into parts and LRU support for EJet series aircraft. The E190 aircraft has 95% commonality with the E195 and significant commonality with the E170/175 aircraft. All major components and subassemblies will be made available once the reduce-to-parts process is initiated in May.
“We are excited to launch our support of the EJet product line” said Angela Baker, AeroVision’s Vice President – Components. “We will leverage our expertise on the Embraer ERJ series regional aircraft to build a “best in class” parts support offering to EJet aircraft operators around the world.”
“AeroVision has built a platform that will allow us to duplicate our ERJ parts support success,” said Jeff Barnes, AeroVision’s President, “and our willingness to make investments in the repair of parts makes our inventory very desirable to the marketplace, when compared to other suppliers. This is a significant step in AeroVision’s efforts to build a complete regional aircraft support business.”
