CRS Jet Spares has increased its overall line item inventory level by 33 percent this year, despite the economy, according to founder and CEO Armando Leighton Jr. “The downturn in the economy has provided us with opportunities to increase our inventory and prepare for the future.

We are certainly aware of the realities of the past 12 to 16 months, but what
it tells me is that now is the time to prepare for the inevitable upturn in the business aviation community.”

The company, which recently added support for the Bombardier CRJ and Gulfstream GII and GIII, serves operators of Falcons, Gulfstream, Beechjets, Learjets, Hawkers and Challengers with exchanges, sales, provisioning packages, repairs and rental options. The AS9120 company operates 24 hours a day.
