We work alongside our clients to safely manage their aircraft during lease transitions, deliveries, demonstrations and distressed recovery operations.

Our industry-first Air Operators' Certificates (AOCs), designed to optimise commercial aircraft leasing options, allow lessors to avoid the need and cost of long term preservation and consider more lease destinations than ever before; increasing asset utilisation and revenue.

Our service delivery platforms are designed to adapt to last-minute requirements and long-term operations planning. With combined decades of experience in all phases of aircraft transition and aircraft placement, we protect your assets every step of the way.

Both our EASA (Malta) and OTARs (Cayman) AOCs grant lessors the operational oversight, asset protection and ease of accessibility required by lease agreements. By providing both an EASA (Maltese) and an OTARs (Cayman) AOC, we give lessors and lessees flexibility to choose the aircraft registration best suited to their requirements.

AOC for Lessors
