Our History

Contact a Specialist

Fondly reminiscing, graciously remembering where we’ve been, and looking ahead with anticipation to the non-stop excitement and accomplishments yet to come.

It’s been an amazing 10 years since Nicolas Finazzo and Robert Nichols recognized an opportunity to provide premier mid-life aircraft and flight equipment support and founded AerSale® in 2008. They hired a small staff of employees and began what would become a great acquisition of aircraft, engines, other companies, and facilities. Customers came—and stayed. Today, the AerSale family includes nearly 450 employees at 11 facilities in four countries and continues to grow.
