Aviall To Expand Distribution of CF34-3 Engine Parts
GE Aviation has signed an exclusive agreement with Aviall Services that expands the latter’s distribution of GE CF34-3 engine parts to include unique life-limited parts (LLPs). “The agreement simplifies spare parts distribution channels for our customers and enables them to receive the same level of access and support for their OEM spare parts,” Tom Gentile, vice president and general manager of GE Aviation’s Services organization, told AIN. “It is effective for the remaining life of the engine and builds on the distribution agreement signed last year.” GE retains technical responsibility for the engines. Under the agreement, Aviall is responsible for forecasting, ordering and delivering all genuine OEM replacement parts that are unique to CF34-3 engines, as well as documentation management, worldwide inventory deployment, warehousing and product distribution. The CF34-3 powers the Bombardier CRJ100/200 regional jets and the Challenger 601/604. The more than 1,650 CF34-3-powered aircraft in airline and corporate service have accumulated more than 24 million flight hours.
