GAIC Performs First Aircraft Disassembly In Beijing

GA Innovation China (GAIC), the joint venture between GA Telesis and Air China, has begun its first commercial aircraft teardown project involving a 747-400 aircraft acquired from Air China. A ceremony was held at Beijing Capital International Airport (BCIA) in Aircraft Maintenance and Engineering Corporation’s (AMECO) hangar to celebrate the project; the signing of an agreement between GAIC and BCIA was also completed. The aircraft will be disassembled by AMECO and the engines will be exported to the United States. GAIC will select parts derived from the disassembly and warehouse them in Beijing for sale in both China and the rest of the world; the remaining airframe has been sold by GAIC to BCIA to be used in the fire department and during security drills.
