Helicopter leasing is more than just Milestone
Cypress Leasing, ITC Leasing, Lease Corporation International and Lobo Leasing are all contributing to making helicopter leasing a lucrative market.
The winner of Corporate Jet Investor’s Helicopter Financier of the Year award, Milestone Aviation Group, has grown quickly, signed-up lots of assets and made a big impact. But if you are looking for helicopter leases here are the contact details for four other international helicopter leasing companies.
A specialist equipment investor Cypress Leasing has a $1 billion portfolio. It specialises in transportation, energy, and industrial assets and is best known for ship finance. Cypress invested in 10 helicopters in 2011 and is looking to do more in 2012.
With 30 years’ experience there are few countries that Japan’s ITC Leasing has not leased helicopters into.
Lease Corporation International
LCI’s background is in commercial aircraft leasing but in 2012 it signed a $400 million order with Eurocopter.
Another new entrant. Well-backed by Perella Weinberg Partners, Lobo Leasing is open to all enquiries and actively searching for deals.
And of course there is:
Milestone Aviation Group
Highly regarded and aggressive, despite being less than two years’ old, Milestone is probably the best know-helicopter lessor in the world.
