A quarter of a billion in transactions later – inventory leasing benefits still far outweigh the higher cost alternatives.

Life of a Landing Gear / By Pastor Lopez

Life of a Landing Gear / By Pastor Lopez

Most people think that the most stressful moment of a landing gear is when the aircraft is taking off or landing.

During pushback, the aircraft is fully loaded and a tug operator is pushing… Read more

From Balsa to Bamboo – The Commercial Aviation Industry / By Abdol Moabery

The Commercial Aviation Industry and Its Significance I read once, the human capacity for burden is like bamboo – far more flexible than you’d ever believe.  The question is whether this principle can be applied to a company or even an industry.  There are certain companies and industries where this would not apply, but after decades of working in the very cyclical commercial aviation sector, I suggest that like bamboo, the market forces that drive… Read more

Trust in Data: Finding Ways to Benefit Our Customers / By Meghan Burgan

Over the last 20 years, one thing that remained constant in my various aviation roles is the recognized benefit from data utilization and analysis. Earlier in my career, I acquired in-depth knowledge of process modeling, change management, project management, and Six Sigma black belt practices.

Aircraft Valuations: What’s the Secret Sauce? / By Marc Cho

During an interview for a summer internship before my senior year at college, an investment banker asked me to sum up investment banking in one word.

The Runway to Building GA Telesis / By Abdol Moabery

When I founded GA Telesis I knew the direction I wanted to take the company.  I never envisioned the company as a tool to create a job for myself, but rather something much bigger.  I was also never that guy that always dreamed of being my own boss, being CEO yes, my own boss no. In fact, I have had some pretty great bosses and co-workers along the way and from each and every one… Read more
