PEACHTREE CITY, USA – Aventure Aviation has acquired a Boeing 757-200 airframe (MSN 27971) for teardown, Aventure’s second 757 purchase in the last few months. The aircraft is currently stored in Goodyear, Arizona.
Last operated by Air Astana, the 757 is equipped with a half-life serviceable APU, heavy-weight landing gear with over seven years of time remaining before next overhaul, and RB211 nacelles with FAA Airworthiness Directives accomplished and installed by Boeing in 2018. The 757 airframe is considered one of the best conversion candidates on the market.
“The cargo market is booming due to the COVID-19 crisis, and the Boeing 757 is a key component of the world’s cargo fleet,” said Aventure Vice President, Talha Faruqi. “Nearly all Delta and United 757s have come back into service, so we are seeing strong demand for parts from both airlines and freight carriers.”
“We continue to see interesting opportunities to purchase aircraft for conversion and part-out,” added Melissa Coleman-Grina, Aventure’s Senior Director of Sales. “As commercial aviation continues to struggle, operators and leasing companies are searching for reputable companies to take on their surplus aircraft. Aventure has the financing and capabilities to purchase these assets.”
