The AJW Group has purchased a CFM56-5B4 engine for teardown in support of its expanding engine management programmes.

    AJW, the independent specialist in the global management of aircraft spares will store the parts at its HQ in Sussex, UK. The parts will be shipped to AJW’s strategic hubs around the world ready for exchange and sale to support airline customers’ extensive portfolio of A320 family aircraft.

    President and CEO of AJW Group, Christopher Whiteside said: “The successful acquisition of this in-demand engine type gives our customers across the globe access to a pool of high-quality spare parts that support their ongoing operations.”

    AJW’s engine services offer expertise and support across: Engine Sale and Lease, Fan Blade Exchange Programmes, Material Recovery Programmes, Engine Parts Support, Technical Documentation Management and Shop Visit Management.

    The CFM56-5B is the engine of choice for the A320 family, having been selected to power nearly 60 percent of the aircraft ordered according to the manufacturer CFM.

    Currently, it is the only engine that can power every model of the A320 family with one bill of materials.

    The engine’s broad-based market acceptance is due to its simple, rugged architecture, which gives it the highest reliability, durability and reparability in its class.
