Webinar: Used Serviceable Materials Post-Pandemic

This webinar took place May 6, 2020

Before the current downturn, many airframe and engine platforms were facing shortages of quality used service material (USM). With airlines poised to reduce their flying and their fleet sizes to match new, lower demand, that will change. Retirements will rise, and new deliveries will fall. What could this mean for USM suppliers? How will operators view the USM market going forward?

Watch the full recording above to hear our panel of experienced industry representatives explore how the novel coronavirus pandemic could re-shape the USM landscape.
