AeroVision International (Muskegon, Michigan) announces the sale of a second fully refurbished ERJ- 145EP aircraft to Groupe Transair, an African carrier based in Dakar, Senegal. The 50 seat aircraft refurbishment was managed to Groupe Transair’s specifications by AeroVision staff members and was painted with a newly designed livery.

Both aircraft will operate on routes within Western Africa out of Groupe Transair’s Dakar, Senegal hub. With the recent shutdown of Senegal Airlines, Groupe Transair is rebuilding the capacity lost with the closure of Senegal’s former regional carrier.

“We are pleased to have been selected again to provide another ERJ aircraft for Groupe Transair,” said Jeff Bardal, AeroVision’s Vice President of Aircraft Sales / Leasing. “The ERJ-145EP is perfectly suited to their operational requirements and AeroVision’s ongoing LRU/spare parts support agreement will enable Groupe Transair to maintain the high level of dispatch reliability they require.”

AeroVision was among the first to enter the ERJ airframe parts business with the 2012 acquisition of a fleet of low time / low cycle ERJ-145LR’s formerly operated by Mesa Air Group and has become the largest independent supplier of ERJ material and major subassemblies (landing gear / APU’s / AE3007 engines) in the world, supporting both regional airlines and corporate / shuttle operators. Additionally, AeroVision has managed the refurbishment and return to service of numerous ERJ-145LR & ERJ145EP’s to date, with several additional refurbishment projects to be announced shortly.
