UK spare parts specialist AJ Walter Aviation has introduced a fan blade exchange service for CFM International CFM56 engines.
The company has started providing complete fan blade sets for CFM56-3 and -7B engines for Boeing 737-300/400/500 and -600/700/800/900 aircraft, respectively.
AJW also offers CFM56-5A fan blades for certain Airbus A320s. The later -5B variant for the European twinjet is to be added to the service in early 2013.
AJW says it will store "ready to ship" fan blade sets, which will be "fully overhauled, mapped and moment-weighted".
