Chapman Freeborn moves aircraft engines on Ilyushin 76 in India for emergency

The global aircraft charter specialist Chapman Freeborn announced that it moved aircraft engines on an Ilyushin 76 aircraft as there was an AOG (aircraft on ground) incident at a challenging airport in North India and the client urgently needed a new engine delivered from Delhi and for the damaged engine to be returned.
“Some operations are harder than others, and when the cargo is as fragile and high value as aircraft engines, a very specialised handling process is required. Chapman Freeborn recently conquered this, and all under strict time constraints,” noted the release.

This required impeccable teamwork from Chapman Freeborn, as not only were permits needed, but there were also legal and compliance issues to address, dealt with by Chapman Freeborn Directors Pierre Van Der Stichele and Daniel Carriett. Additionally, ground time was restricted meaning that only daytime operations were permitted.

The groundwork had to be precise and efficient, as an AOG can be incredibly costly in any situation and the knock-on effects can be drastic. But with over 47 years of experience, the Chapman Freeborn team was able to transport the new engine carefully and promptly in an Ilyushin 76, significantly reducing the client’s stress.
