NORDAM and GE Capital Aviation Services Asset Management Services (GECAS AMS), the recertified commercial aircraft components solution of GECAS, announced today that their partnership to provide airline customers with flight control systems begins July 1st.
The program begins with Airbus A320 flight controls, which are stocked in Tulsa, Okla., and Victorville, Calif. locations. It will expand soon to include flight controls for other aircraft types, with a goal of expanding the program to other aircraft products in the future.
“This is a unique partnership that gives airlines with an AOG another option: faster access to NORDAM-quality repaired flight control systems to minimize aircraft downtime and service interruptions,” said Jeff Keisling, vice president global sales and acquisitions for GECAS’ Asset Management Services.
According to Bailey J. Siegfried, NORDAM’s vice president of global marketing whose duties encompass oversight of the firm’s global rotable asset portfolio, availability of the GECAS AMS inventory means more options for NORDAM customers. “With access to the breadth and depth of serviceable parts from GECAS AMS, our ability to exceed customer expectations for quickly providing solutions is enhanced,” Siegfried said.
Announced in 2014, the partnership combines GECAS’ inventory of flight control parts from its aircraft teardowns with NORDAM’s strengths in component repair to offer an airline customer a faster, lower-cost solution than repair of the airline’s part.
