A leading aircraft and engine component solutions company purchases a PW4056 engine previously operated by China Cargo Airline
Palm City, Florida – November 13TH, 2014 – STS Component Solutions, a division of STS Aviation Group, has successfully acquired a PW4056 aircraft engine, the company’s third PW4000 series engine purchase in 2014. China Cargo Airlines previously operated the asset, and it is currently being dissembled where all components will be re-certified and made available for sale.
The Pratt and Whitney PW4000 is a family of high-bypass turbofan aircraft engines with certified thrust ranging from 52,000 to 99,040 FN. Built as the successor to the JT9D series engines, the PW4000 powers the Airbus A310-300, A300-600 aircraft, Boeing 747-400, 767-200/300 as well as MD11 aircraft and is certified for 180-minute ETOPS if used in twinjets.
“The acquisition of this engine further expands our engine product portfolio and provides our global base with additional cost-savings opportunities on this engine product line,” says Tom Covella, Group President of STS Component Solutions. “As we continue to grow our inventory product offerings, we anticipate a high demand for the components we have obtained through this acquisition. With over 900 aircraft that are currently operating this type of engine, this new procurement demonstrates our commitment to providing cost-efficient engine component solutions to our customers.”
“STS Component Solutions continues to seek out and capitalize on new and exciting opportunities for business growth, and the acquisition of this PW4056 engine is another strong example of that fact,” communicates P.J. Anson, Chief Executive Officer at STS Aviation Group.
