Aviation

Our principals have completed in excess of $1 billion of commercial aircraft, engine, and rotables transactions.

Panthera Aviation currently owns a large pool of aviation spares subject to lease, exchanges or sales. Panthera also works closely with MROs (Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul facilities) in order to optimize the parts pool. In 2016, to further expand our ability to add value and broaden our service offerings, we invested in an MRO which provides extensive services in commercial and military aircraft related parts.

Our typical transaction involves $15 million of equity or less, and the underlying equipment is usually aircraft, engines or rotable spares subject to leases with a remaining term of no more than seven years. Recent transactions involve international as well as domestic lessees and sale/leaseback counterparts.

Unlike many lessors we have great flexibility as to structure, having completed straightforward acquisitions as well as forward purchases, residual options, and unsecured positions. Our flexibility allows us to look at all types of equipment, including  older equipment and part-out or reconfiguration opportunities.
