How to Efficiently Dismantle an Aircraft in 19 Days (Case Study)



CAVU Aerospace recognized there was a legibility issue with removal tags within the commercial aviation industry as it related to the aircraft dismantle and remarketing sector.  It was clear to CAVU that there were too many human errors with removal tags when aircraft parts were removed.  These errors occur because many removal tags are hand-written.  These errors cost money by extending the dismantle time that ultimately delays a client’s ability to recoup their investment. Lost time is lost money. As part of our CAVUSmartServices™ technology and processes, we launched CAVUSmartTags™ which delivers a complete removal system and provides real-time part manifests, part number-serial number error checking and automated shipment notification.



CAVU was approached by a large international aviation aftermarket organization that had been awarded a Boeing 747-400 for dismantling. Turbo Resources wanted to generate a residual value out of the 18-year-old aircraft after the aircraft had ended its service.


The organization was awarded the aircraft on a consignment basis from a large aircraft lessor who had requirements to recapture capital within twenty-five days. The other challenge facing the lessor was the requirement for accurate documentation and visibility of material during the dismantling process.  This was critical for insurance purposes.  Many industry aftermarket dismantle companies did not have digital capabilities for removal tags when they were doing research until they got in contact with CAVU.



CAVU implemented its trusted R.A.M.P Program (Recycling, Asset Management Program). By doing this, they were able to dismantle the aircraft in 19 days and have all material tagged via the CAVUSmartTags™ system.  Not only did Turbo Research reach its goal for capital recapture but realized a value increase of 30%.
