AeroVision International has confirmed it will be the remarketing agent for SkyWest Airlines, the wholly-owned subsidiary of SkyWest, Inc., for the carrier’s Embraer EMB 120 airframe and engine components inventory.
The US carrier discontinued its EMB 120 twin turboprop operations in 2015. Michigan-based AeroVision expanded its EMB 120 offering in 2017 with the purchase of 10 of the aircraft type from SkyWest, with several of these now available for immediate sale. Several are also being reduced to parts to further support EMB 120 operators.
AeroVision also stocks a large inventory of PW118 series engines, it added, as part of its engine and component support services.
Jeff Barnes, vice-president, business development at the company, said it would now be able to provide “world-class engine and component support to EMB 120 operators. This remarketing agreement significantly enhances our product offering to the customer and provides an immediate solution for SkyWest Airlines.”
McKenzie Kolkema, manager, aircraft sales, added the agreement “will ensure we continue to provide solid support to our EMB 120 aircraft customers before and after the sale of an aircraft. We can now offer a complete component support package with the sale of our EMB 120 aircraft, reducing operating costs and improving reliability for our customers.”
AeroVision also recently signed a comprehensive 5-year cost-per-hour parts agreement in support of UK airline bmi regional’s fleet of 20 ERJ twin-jet aircraft. The carrier has a regional fleet of ERJ135 and ERJ145 aircraft that will be serviced by the component support deal.
