Residual Values Play Bigger Role In Aircastle’s Purchase Decisions
Aircastle’s decisions on which aircraft to acquire are being driven in part by where the date of manufacture falls in the production life of the platform, says Ron Wainshal, CEO of the Stamford, Conn.-based aircraft lessor.
“We believe that the useful life of an aircraft will be driven in large part by where its date of manufacture falls in the production life of the platform. Aircraft produced towards the end of a production run will likely have shorter lives,” Wainshal said during a conference call on the company’s third-quarter earnings.
