Ron Wainshal - Chief Executive Officer

Presentation

Unidentified Speaker

Good afternoon, everybody. Thank you for sticking around. Aircastle’s Ron is here to present Aircastle’s little bit differentiated strategies than some of the other aircraft lessors. And that they tend to focus on more of the full actual life of the plane, but you know what, I will let Ron tell you a little bit more.

Ron Wainshal

Thanks. I will spend a few minutes trying to figure how this works. Okay. A little bit about Aircastle. Aircastle was built out of the ashes of the U.S. bankruptcy and then economic down cycle of 2004-2005, that’s when we came into existence. And our purpose in life was not necessarily to become the biggest owner of shiny aircraft but to be the best aircraft investor that was around. And the way you do that is you look around like any investor for the best relative value on the investment side.

And I will talk a lot about our investment strategy and how it’s different in why. And you also try to differentiate yourself and establish as much of a competitive advantage as you can in terms of the funding side. We’re not owned by a large engine manufacturer or an insurance company, we’re a standalone company, but there’s still things you can do to differentiate yourself.
