There comes a day when aircraft get old and it’s time for them to retire. Their joints begin to ache, their bolts begin to fall out and their oil dries up.
If you have or know of such an aircraft that’s hurting and barely getting through its last days, we want her.
We’re looking for various teardown candidates who have reached the end of their life.
The current aircraft we want to put in on our retirement plan so they can feel happy and useful once again are:
We've worked with Boeing aircraft for over a decade. The B737-300/400/500 aircraft is dear to our heart and we want to make sure that she gets the most out of her life. She is our short to medium-range twin jet narrow-body work horse.
With an increasing number of clients utilizing this aircraft we want to make sure they're covered. This mid to large size, long-range, wide-body twin-engine jet has become a popular choice and we would like to add more to our retirement plan.
Another popular short to medium range, narrow-body aircraft that comprises a large amount of our maintenance traffic. Since she is popular by our clients, we would like to continue to add more of these aging aircraft to our retirement program.
ATR42 and ATR72
With the first ATR produced in 1984, these regional, twin-turboprops have been a major product line at Skylink. They are a unique blend of elegance and efficiency and as they age we want to make sure they go out peacefully.
Lockheed C-130 Hercules
A major player in the military transport field, this four-engine turboprop is a major transporter for the international Air Forces we work for. She is strong, yet aging. To continually support newer fleets cost effectively, we must be able to use pieces of aging fleets. We will evaluate any model available for tear down.
As you can see, we have a few aircraft that we want to continually add to our retirement program. These aging fleets deserve final days on green pastures and we want to grant them that wish.
