Aerocircular is a full-service provider dedicated to processing aircraft at the end of their lives and catering to owners of large aircraft fleet.
Its first job is to assist fleet managers in selecting those aircraft that will go through the phase-out procedures.
Secondly, Aerocircular disassembles the reusable parts and dismantles the non-reusable components of the selected aircraft.
Aerocircular then processes the reusable parts in compliance with the standard operation procedures of the EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency). Components are either stored at Aerocircular or sent to the aircraft manager/owner’s destination of choice.
In addition, the company provides a 100% non-reusable parts recycling procedure. All parts are handled in order to attain the best value through upcycling or recycling.
As far as upcycling is concerned, Aerocircular delivers the components to third-party companies that specialize in processing them, so they can re-enter the material market at their best possible value. Those materials that cannot be upcycled are processed by third-party companies through standard methods, as long as more high-end purposes are not available.
