GlobalParts.aero, a Kansas-based aviation parts supplier, will take over the primary responsibility for all planning, stocking and distribution of aircraft parts of these Learjet series aircraft.
“We are extremely pleased to collaborate with GlobalParts.aero in this venture. This agreement will ensure that many more parts will be available at a competitive price and we expect it will have a positive impact on our operators’ cost of ownership,” said Bill Molloy, Vice President of Parts Services, Bombardier Business Aircraft.
“We are prepared to enhance support for Learjet 20, Learjet 30, and Learjet 50 series aircraft customers right away,” said Malissa Nesmith, GlobalParts.aero’s Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. “We have expanded our inventory of Learjet parts in recent months and have the capability and expertise to repair parts as well.
