PEACHTREE CITY, USA – Aventure Aviation has acquired a Boeing 757-200 for teardown, its fourth for 2020. The airframe, MSN 28112, is currently stored at eCube in Wales, UK.
The aircraft, last operated by Air Astana, is currently equipped with a half-life auxiliary power unit, landing gear with 7+ years remaining green time, and RB211 nacelles with FAA AD modification installed in 2017. It has been subject to a maintenance storage plan ever since its recent removal from service.
“Aventure continues to double down on the success of the cargo market, where the Boeing 757 is key. Over the last few years, we have become one of the world’s foremost providers of 757 parts support,” said Aventure Vice President, Talha Faruqi. “The 757 has many common parts with the 767, which is an equally popular freighter. Few can match the experience or stock that Aventure has.”
“We continue to see interesting opportunities to purchase aircraft part-out,” Mr. Faruqi added. “This will not be our last purchase for 2020. As the commercial aviation industry continues to struggle, operators and leasing companies are searching for reputable companies willing to take on their surplus aircraft. Aventure has the financing and capabilities to purchase these assets.”
Aventure is presently considering the acquisition of several other Airbus, Boeing, Embraer, and Bombardier aircraft, focusing on end-of-life aircraft for dismantling and conversion purposes.
