In a welcome development for operators who are flying VIP-converted Jetstream J31/J32s, UK-based Saywell International (Booth No. 1805) became the sole spares distribution center for the BAE Systems-built airplanes this year and is rapidly increasing its support capabilities.
Already holding the world’s most comprehensive inventory of spare parts for BAE aircraft when the Jetstream deal was signed late last year, Saywell has since consolidated BAE Systems’ entire global inventory of J31/J32 spares to its Worthing, England and Hollywood, Fla. warehouses. According to BAE Systems, “Both [BAE Systems] Regional Aircraft and Saywell believe that this transfer will result in a better, more focused service to the smaller operators in the now geographically fragmented Jetstream 31/32 market.”
Founded in 1946, Saywell began stocking and distributing spares for DC-3 aircraft in 1950. The company offers a wide range of consumables, rotables and airframe spares for myriad airline and general aviation aircraft including Airbus and Boeing series; Dornier Do 288; Embraer 120; Fokker F27, F28, F50 and F100; Shorts Skyvan 330 and 360; and de Havilland Twin Otter. Providing international support, Saywell maintains facilities in the UK, U.S., Canada and Singapore.
