Aviall enters expanded parts agreement for J85 engine


Aviall was recently awarded an indefinite-quantity contract modification from the Defense Logistics Agency to supply additional spare parts for the GE Aviation J85 engine.

Aviall is a wholly owned subsidiary Boeing.

With the addition of this modification, Aviall now provides more than 200 spare parts for GE’s J85 engine in support of its long-term contract with DLA Aviation. The agreement extends for the life of the engine.

“We are pleased to extend our relationship with the DLA as an industry-leading provider of genuine parts for the GE J85 engine,” stated Aviall President and CEO Eric Strafel. “Aviall appreciates the continued confidence the DLA has demonstrated by expanding our agreement to provide world-class parts support to our defense customers.”

Aviall began its spare parts distribution for the GE J85 engine in 2012. The engine is currently being utilized on the T38 and F5 aircraft by the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Navy and various foreign militaries around the world.

The DLA is the Department of Defense’s largest logistics combat support agency, providing worldwide logistics support in both peacetime and wartime to the military services as well as several civilian agencies and foreign countries.
