From the beginning, AerSale was developed to be a leading supplier of aftermarket aircraft, engines and components.
In 1997, AerSale founders Nicolas Finazzo and Robert Nichols launched AeroTurbine as their first aviation venture together. Within nine years, they grew AeroTurbine to become a major provider of aftermarket aircraft, engines and parts, at which time they sold the business.
With a strong desire to capitalize on their prior experience, they teamed with one of the world's preeminent private equity firms, Leonard Green & Partners, L.P., with a shared vision of creating a premier mid-life flight equipment support organization.
Today AerSale provides unprecedented aircraft, engine and inventory support to the world's top airlines, leasing companies, MROs and government entities.
