Do you waste hours of your time sending and processing RFQs? This is TIME you’ll never get back! Read this post and we’ll share with you simple ways to source your next aircraft part requirements.
Do you purchase aircraft brakes? Of course, you do. Whether you purchase, exchange, or repair brakes, a lot of time and money is spent managing this critical component. The total MRO demand for aircraft wheel and brakes in 2019 is $2,500,000,000. How much you spend is in there somewhere…
Part number. Search. Mass RFQ. Repeat. By following this method, you’re leaving time and money on the table. Once you implement a few simple tips, you’ll streamline your APU sourcing process, making it more efficient, because at the end of the day you care about results.
Hydraulic leaks disrupt an operation. The words AOG screech everyone into a panic. A frenzy.

Does sourcing aircraft part repairs make you want to scream?
Source. Process. Chase. Repeat.
Hundreds of part numbers. A dozen ATA chapters. And an overabundance of possible MROs, all over the world.
Being connected to many executives for large operators, I hear about this problem constantly.
Getting the best price and product for your supply chain requirements
The aviation industry is experiencing tough market conditions. Many Official Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) are finding themselves in a position where their gross margins have plateaued while suppliers are experiencing the opposite: gross margin increase.
This imbalance creates risk and disruption in the supply chain and organizations are now looking at best-practice solutions in reducing their aircraft line maintenance purchasing costs.
So, I remember when I needed to buy an INU for an aircraft maintenance project. But, I had a problem…
The d!@$ supplier never answered my call, my email, or my threats. Go figure. It was after we wired them the money. He disappeared. Gone. Vanished.
If you spend more than an hour a day sourcing aircraft parts, you're going to want to read this. Don’t postpone it. Sit back, drink your favorite coffee and absorb what I’m about to share with you.
Count the hours you spend sourcing aircraft parts. Is it an hour a day? Two? Over three hours? What if you could reduce it to 30 minutes a day?
Is processing your aircraft expendable orders like cleaning a toilet?
It’s messy, time-consuming, and there are more productive things you could be doing.
But whether you like it or not, these low value, high volume items are an important asset to your fleet.
Yet, they take up a ton of time.
Expendables and consumables. The inglorious material that gives you a headache.
You know the feeling. You get a 100 part requirement. Or 200. Or 1,000. And your head wants to explode.
