The long dormant aircraft sector may be getting a shot in the arm soon as two issuers are expected to bring deals in the coming months. G.E. Capital Corp. and debis AirFinance are reportedly planning aircraft lease-backed deals soon, according to a source familiar with the deals. Neither Stamford, Conn.-based G.E. Capital nor Amsterdam-based debis responded to inquiries about the possible deals.
Since G.E.'s two previous aircraft deals have been backed by leases on corporate aircraft, the upcoming deal is expected to be a corporate lease-backed deal as well. debis mostly leases jets and turboprops to commercial airlines, and therefore, commercial leases would likely back its deal.
