The Continuing Evolution of the Engine Leasing Industry

A little over six years ago, Engine Lease Finance Corporation Group President and CEO Jon Sharp wrote an article for Jetrader that examined the state of engine leasing. The original article looked back roughly 30 years to trace the industry's development from being a principally OEM product support function into a commercially sustainable short-term leasing business and ultimately into a very sophisticated long-term operating leasing business.
With more than a half decade passing since the original article's publication — a time period that can see massive changes in the industry — Sharp revisits the topic, providing new insights, assessments and predictions, and he offers an assessment of his original prognostications.
