Aircraft Leasing & Financing Advisory

Leading lessors, operators, lenders, and investors rely on Alton’s team of professionals for market analysis, business strategy, financial analysis, due diligence, cash flow forecasting, risk analysis, aircraft appraisals, asset management, and technical services.

Debt and Equity Investment Advisory

Alton is dedicated to providing independent and objective advisory services to its clients evaluating a broad range of investment opportunities, from single aircraft or engines to large portfolios, including leasing start-ups, investment funds, joint ventures, structured financings, portfolio sales, asset-backed securitizations, and whole enterprise transactions.

Through multiple business cycles, our professionals have advised on many of the largest finance and leasing transactions in the aviation industry. Our advisory work includes comprehensive, detailed evaluation through the entirety of an aviation asset’s lifecycle: new or near-new, mid-life, and end-of-life aircraft segments, and our expertise extends across turboprop, regional jet, rotary wing, narrowbody, widebody aircraft and engines, in both passenger and freighter configurations.

Our aircraft advisory services frequently begin with market analysis of the air transport and aircraft leasing industries. We use a variety of proven proprietary tools and frameworks to help investors understand business cycles, strategies, returns, and risks. Our assessments of investment opportunities consider the asset, counterparty credit, financing structure, commercial and technical lease provisions, jurisdiction, and other related matters.

  • Lease cash flow forecasts and lease encumbered valuations.
  • Residual value projections grounded in reality and derived from statistical analysis and expert insights.
  • Maintenance support evaluations to project the expected condition and maintenance cash flows over the duration of the current lease, and beyond.
  • Aircraft appraisals and valuations by ISTAT-certified appraisers, leveraging Alton’s proprietary aircraft bluebook.
  • Comprehensive airline credit risk assessments.

Asset Management & Technical Services
Alton extends its investment advisory offering described above to include implementation, with a range of services including asset management and technical services to ensure their investment is protected.

Alton prides itself on its deep domain expertise across all facets of the aviation industry, and asset management is no different. Our mantra for aviation asset management services is Investment Protection and Relationship Enhancement.

With respect to investment protection, our team:

  • have built robust, industry best practice processes to ensure consistency and high quality throughout the entire scope of asset management;
  • commit dedicated, experienced professionals to manage these processes; and
  • undertake continuous in-house training to ensure our offering reflects industry best practices.
Client relationship and reputation has never been more important. Alton’s dedicated asset managers bring not only deep technical and commercial competency, but also excellent communication skills to foster productive relationships and successful outcomes. Alton is precise in its approach, and proactive at identifying and solving problems, all with professional communication with our clients and their customers and suppliers.
