Boeing subsidiary Aviall has launched its parts sales and distribution agreement with Rolls-Royce to support its global fleet of AE engines, the company announced on 16 November.

Under this agreement, Aviall has become the sole sales and distribution provider for all defence variants of the Rolls-Royce AE engine family. The new deal builds upon Aviall's current service and support of Rolls-Royce T56, M250 and RR300 engines.

The AE family of engines compromises the AE 2100 turboprop which powers the C-130J, C-27J and Shinmaywa US-2 aircraft; the AE 1107C turboshaft which powers the V-22 Osprey tiltrotor aircraft; and the AE 3007 turbofan, which powers the Global Hawk UAS.

Eric Strafel, president and CEO, Aviall, said: ‘We are extremely pleased to continue growing our relationship with Rolls-Royce by providing world-class distribution and service for its AE defence engines.

‘With our integrated relationship, Aviall is able to provide operators with agile, predictive and responsive solutions that create value through increased material availability, enhanced service response and an unwavering commitment to fleet preparedness.’
