“For our second quarter 2012 and year-to-date results, I’m pleased to announce continuing successive record results in the execution of our growth plan. During the second quarter ALC saw stable lease demand for our new aircraft positions despite financial headlines regarding Europe and potential slowing in China. With our recent launch order for the Boeing 737 MAX and the favorable economics associated with being a launch customer we have secured ALC’s core business through 2022 with a product that has strong market demand. Our lease placements continue to be in line with our expectations and we are nearing full placement of our new aircraft deliveries through 2015,” said Steven F. Udvar-Házy, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Air Lease Corporation.
