Duncan Aviation signed a Parts Reclamation Engine Surplus (PRES) agreement with Honeywell Aerospace today for the Honeywell TFE731-2 and -3 turbofan engines. According to Duncan, reclaimed engine parts provide value in cost control and extension of aircraft life. Under this agreement and per Honeywell technical data, Duncan can purchase, inspect, recertify, and repair serviceable parts.
“It’s simple economics,” said Duncan Aviation engine services manager James Prater. “Reclaimed engine parts give operators more options to control costs, experience faster turn times, and reduce operating costs to extend the life of their aircraft.”
Duncan is a Honeywell TFE731 heavy maintenance facility and the two companies have worked in partnership for almost 40 years. The company said all parts are returned to service with an FAA 8130-3 and EASA dual-release tag. Duncan will be exhibiting at Booth 3896 next week during NBAA 2018.
