Operators need to be ready to fly at all times, sometimes at the shortest notice. And when the aircraft is down for repairs, it takes an expert to find the right part at the right time.
To make the process as smooth as a good landing, Honeywell Aerospace Trading (HAT) offers an extensive inventory of new surplus and reconditioned Honeywell and non-Honeywell equipment that enables operators to quickly have access to the parts they need, when they need them.
Most recently, HAT reinforced its support of the Boeing 737 Next Generation (737NG) product line with a strategic inventory acquisition of all the airframe rotable inventory from two more 737NG aircraft.
Produced since 1996, the 737NG series includes four variants and can seat between 110 and 210 passengers. As of May 2017, more than 6,300 have been delivered.
The airframe components will be re-certified and available from the Honeywell Distribution Center outside of London. These are the second and third complete sets of 737NG airframe rotable components— inventory item that can be repeatedly and economically restored to a fully serviceable condition—purchased by HAT in 2017.
Building upon past success of providing a broad range of inventory solutions, in addition to avionics and auxiliary power units, Honeywell now supports customers with everything from landing gear, thrust reversers and slides to flight controls.
The trading group’s operation was established in 2001 and has been growing in importance in the past few years as the retirement of younger airplanes accelerates with corresponding growth in the aircraft dismantling service industry. Earlier this year, the group relocated its Phoenix operation to a larger facility in order to improve its distribution infrastructure and expand inventory.
