General Electric's subsidiary Middle River Aircraft Systems (MRAS) has selected Aviall (H4/H4) as exclusive distributor of thrust-reverser components for GE CF6-80C2 and -80E engines.

The global agreement follows another deal last year, whereby MRAS contracted Aviall - a supply chain subsidiary of Boeing - to distribute certain other parts for the two CF6 engine models.

MRAS manufactures thrust-reverser components at its plant near Baltimore, Maryland.

The CF6-80C2 is employed on various widebody aircraft, including the Airbus A300/A310, Boeing 747-400, 767, MD-11 and Lockheed C-5M Super Galaxy, while the CF6-80E powers the A330.
