We have become a leading aircraft financing company by delivering the most competitive rates, exceptional service, and maintaining absolute satisfaction with our customers. Due to our efforts, AirFleet has become one of the largest aircraft financing originators in the United States.
Our staff is dedicated to making your aviation adventure the fast and efficient experience that buyers are looking for during this exciting time. With over 5,000 aircraft's financed, we have the experience and knowledge to coordinate all of the moving parts of your purchase. We work directly with The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), insurance firms, title and escrow companies, and sales organizations to ensure a smooth transition of ownership and accurate FAA records.
AirFleet Capital also supports aircraft manufacturers and sales organizations by continuously working with leaders to support the buyers changing needs. We have a long history of providing preferred financial support, establishing special ownership programs, and running captive finance programs.
As a company, we pride ourselves in being very active in the industry. We maintain this presence by attending monthly trade events, speaking to owner groups, and meeting with our customers face-to-face. This is all done in support of general aviation and to keep our finger on the pulse of our buyers.
The best compliment we have ever received came from an industry salesperson, who said, "You all understand our customer because you are our customer!"
We would appreciate the opportunity to share in your journey and help make your purchase as easy and enjoyable as possible. Our smart approach to aircraft buyers, sellers, and lenders uniquely aligns with the goals of all parties who share our passion for the generation aviation community.
We are dedicated to getting our job - your financing - done.
