4. CONSIGNMENT PROGRAMS
5. EXPERT PARTS REVIEW
Our core customers are military-focused and operate the 707 and KC-10 aircraft. These aircraft are used for a variety of missions including aerial surveillance and air-to-air re-fueling. They are considered legacy airframes and some of them have been in service since the early 1960’s. The U.S. Military is concerned about the high cost to maintain these aircraft and we consistently provide an excellent resource on that front.
We receive daily push lists for quotes, directly from our customers. Additionally, we receive requests for quotes from various other parties via Inventory Locator Service (ILS) for parts we have listed for sale. Dealing with all of these requests requires our staff to manage requirements in a timely and efficient manner.
Our concierge-minded sales team sometimes encounters requirements that fall outside of their expertise. When that happens, they are expected to provide solutions. At Western Aero Services, our philosophy has always been to encourage our team to operate as entrepreneurs—to make smart decisions and provide smart solutions on a timely and cost-efficient basis.
That's how we've achieved a reputation for exemplary On-Time Delivery, Quality and Customer Satisfaction.
