Share

AerSale ®, a global supplier of aircraft, engines, used serviceable material (USM), and maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) services, announced today it has acquired aircraft parts distributor Qwest Air Parts, Inc. Based in Memphis, Tennessee, Qwest is a recognized leader in aircraft dismantlement and the refurbishment and resale of USM. Qwest has disassembled over 200 aircraft, offers 24/7 AOG service, and operates a teardown facility in Crestview, Florida. Gary Jones, Qwest’s founder, President and CEO, will continue to lead Qwest, which will operate as a stand-alone independent subsidiary of AerSale. The acquisition of Qwest will add scale and reach to AerSale’s already significant airframe USM offerings. Furthermore, Qwest’s recently certified repair station, Q2 Aviation LLC, will supplement AerSale’s growing MRO platform.

“As a proven leader in aircraft parts distribution, Qwest is an optimal partner to help further expand our large inventory of high-demand USM, which we cost-efficiently source through fleet acquisitions and part-out of our retiring lease portfolio assets,” said Nicolas Finazzo, Executive Chairman of AerSale. “Our customers can now look forward to even more expertise and added value from our integrated aircraft, engine, and component solutions.”

AerSale is a premier provider of one-stop services offering aircraft and engine leasing, uncompromising MRO services, and USM supply solutions to the world’s most demanding commercial and governmental operators. The company provides flight equipment operators and MROs significant cost savings on the purchase of USM in lieu of expensive OEM new replacement parts. The acquisition of Qwest will include the addition of 38 skilled professionals and technicians to the greater AerSale family, along with a 160,000-square-foot headquarters and warehouse facility in Memphis, and a 20,000-square-foot teardown facility in Florida. Qwest holds all relevant quality certifications, including ASA-100 and U.S. Department of Transportation Hazardous Material certification.

‘Energy’ Pulses Through Superstar Swimmers in International Swimming League Leg in Naples14.10.2019 10:49:00 CESTPress release

The second and final day of the International Swimming League’s first tour of Europe proved to be the most exciting of the young season thus far, as a sold out crowd at the Piscina Felipe Scandone in Naples, Italy, were treated to a pair of tight club battles that came down to the final event. The passion of the European fans was very evident to those competing, giving them a boost late in the match. “It's really cool how great this has been unfolding,” said Cali Condor’s Caeleb Dressel, who was named MVP with a match-high 57.5 points. “Again this is my first meet, but everyone loved Indy. And this is, I think, even a step up from that because it's in Europe this time. I think the fans are a little bit crazier, a little bit better, a little bit more into it.” "This is a whole other level of things. I mean, the crowd for one, but the lights, the DJ, the walkout, it makes it seem like an event. Not just something that you get to watch, but you feel like you're a part of it.” “The energy
