The membership has a common goal and mission, which is the sustainable management of end-of-life airframes and engines. AFRA collates, consolidates, promotes and publishes the collective experience of its members in its Best Management Practice (BMP) Guides, which have significantly improved the management of end-of-life aircraft in terms of environmental and sustainable performance.
AFRA is the first and only not-for-profit association whose members’ businesses center on the aging commercial aircraft industry. AFRA’s efforts encourage greater collaboration between organisations and companies focused in this market sector, promoting environmentally responsible management of end-of-life aircraft.
AFRA has grown by more than threefold since it was established in 2006. The members of AFRA have many years of combined aircraft recycling experience and have dismantled thousands of aircraft, from both the commercial and military sectors. Members have also contributed to 2,000 aircraft being returned to the market.
AFRA represents companies from across the globe and throughout the supply-chain - from manufacturers to materials recyclers.
In 2006, a small group of industry leaders came together to start the Aicraft Fleet Recycling Association. AFRA would like to extend special recognition to those companies that had the vision for AFRA - and worked to make that vision a reality.
