C&L Inks Deal To Convert, Sell Six Saab Turboprops

Aug 13,2021

C&L Aerospace has signed a deal with Part 135 operator Legends Airways to convert and sell six Saab 340 aircraft for freight operations, the C&L Aviation Group company announced this week. The Bangor, Maine-based company has already converted two of the turboprop twins and expects to deliver the remaining four by year-end.

The deal also calls for C&L Aerospace to provide Legends with parts and technical expertise. We came to C&L not only because they had the aircraft inventory we needed, but also because they have the in-depth knowledge and experience needed to support the Saab 340, said Legends Airways CEO Jon Hierl.

For more than 20 years, C&L Aerospace has been involved in the aftermarket sale and support of the 340. That includes maintaining parts inventory for the aircraft in its warehouses in Austin, Texas; Bangor; London; and Brisbane, Australia. Additionally, the company provides a range of Saab 340 support services that include heavy maintenance, aircraft paint, avionics upgrades, structural modifications, engineering support, and interior refurbishment.

Since 2012, the China Aerospace Propulsion Technology International Forum (CAPTIF) has been held in Shanghai, Xi'an, Shenyang, Chengdu, Changsha and Guiyang in turn. It has been successfully held for eight sessions, attracting more than 2000 industry experts and representatives from hundreds of enterprises in more than 20 countries around the world. Hunan aviation industry has a long history, it is not only the research and production base of small and medium-sized aero-engines in China, but also the birthplace of the first aero-engine in New China and the first fully independently developed aero-engine. It has created several firsts in the aviation industry in New China. Important member units of China's aero-engine industry have also taken root in the province. On May 2018, AECC disclosed AES100 civil turboshaft engine and AEP500 civil turboprop engine for the first time. In the future, the market prospect of civil turboshaft and turboprop aeroengines in China is broad. It is expected that by 2035, there will be nearly 3000 AES100 engines and nearly 3500 AEP500 engines.

Under this background, the 9th China Aerospace Propulsion Technology International Forum will be held in the Changsha City on the upcoming November, focuses on the "14th Five-Year Plan" and medium and long-term development plan, with the theme of digital and intelligent development of aviation propulsion technology, and focuses on the "safe development and green development", "simulation technology", "advanced test and test technology", "structural strength technology" of small and medium-sized civil aviation turboshafts, turboprops and piston engines "Parts design and manufacturing technology", "new materials, new processes" and "maintenance support" and other related topics, we sincerely invite your participation to contribute to the development of technology in China.
