APOC Aviation, leasing, trading and aircraft part-out specialist, has set up a specialist landing gear division to service a growing number of customers across leading airlines and MROs worldwide. With several A320 and B737 assets already out on lease or in active exchange programs, the company is seeking equipment for a wide range of Airbus, Boeing, Embraer and ATR aircraft types.
Creating a dedicated landing gear division was the next logical step for APOC’s expanding asset portfolio, said Karolis Jurkevicius, VP Landing Gear Trading – APOC Aviation. “We have a close network of airline and MRO customers with whom we have been developing short and long-term lease agreements over recent years and now is the time to expand our capabilities. APOC Aviation has a selected number of audited LDG repair shops with whom it manages repairs for customers if so required. It also works with third party experts to tear down LDGs for piece parts for sale or to support customers’ on-going overhaul projects. However, APOC is not an MRO shop itself.
“Our LDGs on lease can be placed by the lessee in workshops of their choice – they are not tied into repair contracts as part of the lease agreement. Our customers like this flexibility which is unusual in the marketplace” said Jurkevicius.
