ORLANDO, Florida – Aviall, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Boeing Company, signed an agreement with GE Aviation to become the sole provider of CF34-8 and CF34-10 new and used parts and line-replaceable units (LRUs) for corporate business jets.
"Aviall is pleased to extend our business relationship with GE through our worldwide part distribution capabilities for corporate jet customers utilizing the CF34 family of engines,” stated Aviall President and CEO Eric Strafel.” This successful partnership, along with our integrated supply chain solutions, will allow us to continue providing the highest quality engine support, convenience and service to the industry, while growing the overall customer experience.”
This announcement builds on previous CF34-3 agreements between Aviall and GE. In March 2015, Aviall became the sole provider of GE CF34-3 used material and lease engines powering the Bombardier Challenger 601, 604, 605, 650 and 850. The ownership transfer built on an exclusive distributor agreement launched in 2009, where Aviall became responsible for forecasting, ordering, and delivering all genuine Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) replacement parts unique to CF34-3 engines. Today, CF34 engines are in service with 200 operators in more than 70 countries.
Since its service entry in 1983 on the Challenger 601 Corporate Jet, the CF34 has earned an industry-leading reputation as one of the cleanest, quietest and most fuel-efficient engines in its class. These rugged, airliner-class powerplants set a new standard in corporate aviation for reliability and low maintenance costs.
Across the CF34 family, GE has delivered more than 6,000 engines and continuously invests in product enhancements. Today, CF34 engines are in service with 200 operators in more than 70 countries.
