Maintenance Expense Management
Our team has developed proprietary technology designed to anticipate maintenance events. This allows us to identify cost-effective maintenance options and proactively offer support to our lessees.
Marketing and Transitioning
Our team of marketing specialists and technical experts work with our airline customers and MROs (Maintenance, Repair, and Overhauls) to efficiently transition aircraft between operators, significantly reducing industry-average downtime and cost.
End-of-Life Asset Liquidation
Recognized historically by Ascend as one of the largest part-out firms globally, we opportunistically distribute aircraft parts and engines through relationships with consignment partners and other aerospace companies to realize value from liquidation.
As one of the largest servicers to aviation debt securitizations, Carlyle Aviation Partners plays an important role in the capital markets. We have issued both loan and 144a bond format securitizations, and have been a market leader in refining these structures.
