Reduce to Spares and Serviceable Parts Reselling

In certain cases, customers may have an engine that is no longer serviceable or the cost to repair is not a viable investment. Funds are better spent to replace the engine or aircraft depending on the customer’s needs. That's why EMS provides a Reduce to Spares (RTS) service that tears down the engine and prepares the parts for resell. We charge a flat fee for RTS services which includes engine tear down, part cataloging, advertising, and shipping. Advertising and selling of parts are via on-line methods and direct shop-to-shop listings. Our company has long standing relationships  with Pratt & Whitney, DOF, and non-DOF facilities that need replacement parts. Our RTS services are performed on-site at our facility with industry leading specialty tools.

Our customers benefit from:

•  Pratt & Whitney turbo-engine expertise providing on-site parts review
•  Ensures that the customer’s interest and investment is maximized
•  Determines condition of each part and remaining life for life-cycle parts
•  EMS specialty tools maximize part recovery and eliminates/minimizes part damage
•  Customer is provided flexible options regarding RTS engine ownership
•  EMS can do a consignment agreement for selling RTS parts and components

See Standard Fee Schedule for flat service fee per engine model. For turbine disk de-blading fees, please contact John Poole at [email protected]. For a list of currently available parts, please contact Kristin Reynolds at [email protected]


Engine Management Specialist's (EMS) reduce-to-spares (RTS) liability is capped at the disassembly charge. This cap is due to the nature of RTS units having various conditions that are outside of EMS’s control, such as but limited to the following: corrosion, over extended time before overhaul (TBO), incident or accident events, poor handling and/or shipping, dropped units, etc.
