An introduction to the spare engine market

Typical engine maintenance requires an engine it to be removed from the aircraft. Spare engines are needed by airlines to ensure that they are able to continue to fly their aircraft while this work is undertaken. Depending on the airline’s operation and engine reliability, at least one spare engine will be required to support five twin-engine aircraft. A spare engine list price varies with the aircraft application but can range from $5m to $34m (2013 price levels). It is expected that 5,200 spare engines with a list price of c.$65bn (2013 price levels) will be required over the next 20 years from 2013.

The airline business is not an easy business, it is very difficult and it needs flexibility… one of the reasons we are glad we went with RRPF is we have this flexibility.
