Aviation Fleet Support is a commercial jet engine owner, trader and lessor. Specialising mostly in CFM56-3 engines we are continually buying, selling and leasing these engines. We like to keep it simple and transact in only our engines, equipment, LLPs, QEC, rotable parts, stands, etc.  We don’t act as intermediaries.

We hold a significant inventory of LLPs and Rotable parts for the CFM56-3, CFM56-5 and CFM56-7 Engines.  They are stored at various strategic locations around the world to support our engines when required for Shop Visits. We regularly tear down engines to provide donor parts for use in our engines.

We sell our CFM56 engine parts to our colleagues and to engine workshops around the world, but it’s not our core business. Search our parts for sale here.




Aviation Fleet Support is fully accredited by the Aviation Suppliers Association's and has met the requirements of Quality System Standard ASA-100 and FAA Advisory Circular 00-56B.
