Transporting an engine is a delicate operation. Moving an engine via aircraft adds a layer of difficulty that requires expertise, reliability, and commitment to the aerospace sector.
Teams at JAS Mexico and JAS Spain recently partnered to complete the secure transport of an aircraft engine from Mexico City to the Madrid Airport Terminal in Spain. Engine dimensions were 450x250x255 cm. The total weight of the engine was 4,920 kgs. An engine this size required special transport arrangements and supervision during lashing to ensure the cargo’s safe arrival at its destination.
Ricardo Molinero, Operations Manager for JAS Madrid, said the teams followed a strict procedure designed to avoid damage to the engine’s inner beadings. “They are very prone to damage if lashing is not done correctly since the engine cradle must, on one hand, be firmly secured to the truck bed but allowing as well some movement, so the inner beadings won’t break,” he said.
To safeguard the engine’s delicate inner beadings, the teams adhere to the following protocol:
This is the third engine JAS Mexico has transported this year. It is the first time JAS Spain’s team has collaborated on a logistics job involving an engine. The engine left Mexico City on July 4 and arrived in Madrid on the afternoon of July 7. Delivery was made on July 8 per the customer’s request. “The engine was delivered timely, fulfilling our client’s tight deadline,” said Molinero.
El transporte de un motor de aeronave siempre conlleva una operativa muy delicada.Si además, hablamos de un transporte aéreo, se añade una capa dedificultad que requiere de amplia experiencia ,fiablidad y compromiso con el sector aeroespacial.
Los equipos de JAS México y JAS España seasociaron recientemente para organizar el transporte aéreo de un motor deavión desde la Ciudad de México hasta la Terminal del Aeropuerto de Madrid enEspaña. Las dimensiones del motor fueron de 450x250x255cm, con un peso total de 4.920 kg. El transportede un motor de este tamaño requiere de lacoordinación organización de recogidas y entregas dedicadas con personal especializado y de una supervisión estricta de la operativa de trincado paragarantizar la llegada segura de la carga a su destino.
Ricardo Molinero, Directorde Operaciones de JAS España, indicó que los equipos de trabajo involucrados siguieron unprocedimiento estricto diseñado para evitar daños en los rodamientos del motor. "Son muy propensos a dañarsesi el trincado de la pieza no se hacecorrectamente, ya que la cuna del motor debe,por un lado, estar firmemente asegurada a la plataforma del camión, peropermitiendo la sujeción, al mismo tiempo, elfuncionamiento del muellaje del motor, para que rodamientosno se vean afectados", dijo.
Para la protección durante el transportede los delicados rodamientos del motor, los equiposse adhieren al siguiente protocolo:
Este es el tercer motor que JAS Méxicotransporta este año, siendo la primera vez que elequipo de JAS España colabora en la operativa de transporte . Elmotor embarcó desde la Ciudad de México el 4 de julio , llegando a Madrid en latarde del 7 de julio. La entregó se realizó el 8 de julio según solicitado por el cliente. “El motor seentregó a tiempo, cumpliendo con el ajustado plazo deentrega nuestro cliente”, dijo Molinero.
JAS Aerospace Mexico, in coordination with JAS Peru and JAS Miami, completed a successful transport from the Jorge Chavez Airport to the Queretaro International Airport. The shipment was completed on May 24 and included a CFM56-5B4/3 standard airplane engine. The CFM56-5B4/3 is the world’s best-selling jet engine and the exclusive engine for Boeing Next-Generation single-aisle airliners.
It is the third engine JAS Aerospace Mexico has transported in 2021. However, it is the first time they handled this kind of sensitive cargo by air. On February 15, the company shipped the first motor. JAS Aerospace moved a second engine on March 1.
Moving a CFM56-5B4/3 engine is a delicate operation due to its size and fragility. The JAS Peru logistics team met every challenge it faced to guarantee the engine’s safe passage. The engine weighs 4,650 kilograms and is 3.99 meters long, 2.50 meters wide, and 2.25 meters tall. Its shape made it difficult to fit in a standard shipping container. The team used an engine stand to secure it in place during the flight. Engine stands must be lightweight enough to prevent exceeding cargo weight limits for air transport.
There are no direct flights from Peru to Mexico, which posed a final test in moving the CFM56-5B4/3 engine for the JAS Peru team. Collaborating with the logistics teams at JAS Miami and JAS Aerospace Mexico ensured safe transport. It also identified the most reliable and profitable route for the client.
CFM56-5B4/3s are powerful engines with many delicate parts. They are expensive to repair if damaged during shipping. “JAS Peru’s qualified professionals can safely and securely handle sensitive cargo that demands zero mistakes or delivery delays,” said Cecelia Galleno, Air Freight Manager for JAS Peru. “Our team continues to offer its expertise in providing transport services to customers that comply with target expectations.”
In late June and early July 2020 JAS Aerospace Mexico transported 3 Helicopters from a Helicopter School located in Veracruz Airport (General Heriberto Jara) to Mexico City, Benito Juarez Airport, Terminal 2.
This moved took place between June the 30th 2020 & July the 1st 2020. This transport required 2 flat bed trucks to be used to transport the 3 Helicopters. Besides managing logistics of the domestic trucking required to make this transport possible, JAS Aerospace Mexico was also in charge of handling the crane required to load the cargo at the origin as well as unload at the destination. The loading took around 4 hours of operation time, plus 3 hours for unloading.
The mission was a total success, the 3 Helicopters were delivered on time and without any issue. These Helicopters are used for training and have 2 passengers cabin seating in each. With maximum take off gross weight of 794kg, empty weight (standard configuration) 500kg, with a useful load of 294kg. They are 6.76mt long, 1.99mt wide, and have a height of 2.65mt.
"Supplying this type of service is always a challenge. We can´t afford any damage to the Helicopters. We must do things slow, with all the planning done in advance, making sure to have the right vendors, and we always have JAS personnel on site to make sure we do everything in the safest manner possible. Failure is not an option." Francisco Robles, National Aerospace Manager, JAS Mexico
These type of shipments are part of the Aerospace services JAS Mexico have been promoting since August 2019. Allowing JAS customers to achieve their goals, on time, and without concern. These are some of the characteristics of the Helicopters:
After a month of precision planning and coordination, JAS India and JAS Spain synchronized their efforts and moved an Airbus H-125 helicopter from the Barcelona airport to the Delhi airport.
The Helicopter is the Eurocopter AS350 Écureuil, now known as Airbus Helicopters H-125, is a single-engine light utility helicopter which was originally designed and manufactured in France.
The customer in India was very happy with the service and were delighted with the on time delivery of the helicopter on schedule and with no issues. This was a result of the detailed planning and coordination of the JAS India team with the JAS Spain team as well as with the local service providers like the client's customs broker, transporter, and customs authorities. All the necessary documentation was processed in accordance to the local laws and well in advance of deadlines so that there was no room for any delay at any point.
Because of this detailed and precise planning, JAS India delivered the helicopter to their customer on time as indicated at the time of delivery at the time of quotation which was almost 20 days prior to the execution date.
