Our Purpose

Backed by private equity firm Warburg Pincus, we formed Aquila Air Capital (“Aquila”) in March 2021 as a specialty finance platform, with an initial focus on purchasing, financing, and leasing mid- to late-life airframes and engines.

Today, we have expanded our platform to offer comprehensive full-service capabilities that include in-house origination, lease management, and technical oversight.

Our Approach

By focusing on high-touch, metal focused transactions, Aquila has been able to underwrite attractive deal-level economics while building our portfolio to $300 million of capital deployed.
