C&L Aerospace Purchases 4 Citation Aircraft for Teardown

Inventory from Sovereign and XLS aircraft to be added to parts inventory.

BANGOR, Maine – C&L Aerospace, a C&L Aviation Group company, has purchased two Citation Sovereign and two Citation XLS aircraft for teardown. Disassembly projects are underway on two of the aircraft with the other two projects already completed at C&L’s Bangor MRO facility.

“With these aircraft, we are launching a tip-to-tail parts program for Sovereign and XLS operators,” said Chris Kilgour, CEO of C&L Aviation Group. “We recognize the scarcity in the market for these particular aircraft parts, so we are making investments now, and in the future, to be a reliable partner for those looking to source parts in the aftermarket.”

C&L has plans to purchase and teardown several more Citation Sovereign and XLS aircraft over the next several years.

As with all of C&L’s inventory, these parts will be inspected and made ready for sale. The process includes photographing and barcoding each part and its corresponding documentation before sending them as viewable links on all customer quotes, promoting more transparency during the buying process.
