Founded in 2002 as an aviation operating company, the Carlyle Aviation Partners team has extensive experience managing aircraft and engine assets of all ages, through all points of an economic cycle.
Having entered the business as an end-of-life part-out firm, we have a distinct advantage in understanding both the metal and metal value of the assets we manage.
Our broad footprint as a global lessor, coupled with our ability to provide financing solutions and liquidity to airlines and manufacturers, cements Carlyle Aviation’s position as a strategic partner to the aviation industry.

Carlyle Aviation Partners works with its industry partners in a variety of ways:
Pre-Delivery Payment Financing
Provider of short-term pre-delivery payment financing facilities for near-term production slots on current generation commercial aircraft.

Commercial Aircraft and Engine Leasing
As the 13th largest lessor globally, Carlyle Aviation currently manages a fleet of approximately 247 aircraft and 17 engines, operated by 90 airlines in over 50 countries.

Maintenance Expense Management
Our team has developed proprietary technology designed to anticipate maintenance events. This allows us to identify cost-effective maintenance options and proactively offer support to our lessees.

Marketing and Transitioning
Our team of marketing specialists and technical experts work with our airline customers and MROs (Maintenance, Repair, and Overhauls) to efficiently transition aircraft between operators, significantly reducing industry-average downtime and cost.

End-of-Life Asset Liquidation
Recognized historically by Ascend as one of the largest part-out firms globally, we opportunistically distribute aircraft parts and engines through relationships with consignment partners and other aerospace companies to realize value from liquidation.

Securitization Servicing
As one of the largest servicers to aviation debt securitizations, Carlyle Aviation Partners plays an important role in the capital markets. We have issued both loan and 144a bond format securitizations, and have been a market leader in refining these structures.
