Global AeroConnect has established many relationships over the last few years that allows them "first look" at many engines that normally do not get publicized on the normal broker channels allowing our customers to see the best possible ROI's. Global's capabilities range from CFMI, GE, Rolls Royce, as well as Pratt and Whitney and International Aero. Global also offers consignment deals to airlines and lease returnees that allow the burden of storing engines and the space they take up to become a thing of the past. Finding the right company to represent your engine or engines is not always the easiest to find, with all of the choices of MRO's and Turbine shops and brokers, it can be confusing and frustrating when your engine that you are trying to sell isn’t marketed properly.
