Aviation Liquidity and Lending

Whether you are exploring leasing options for engines or aircraft or financing for engines, we provide a variety of lending and financing options to meet your current needs. Our Liquidity for Airlines program offers innovative aviation solutions – including cash – through both short- and long-term asset financing options. Defer significant engine maintenance and shop visit costs on existing engines in your fleet costs by borrowing a green-time engine from us through our green-time lease program.

Reduce costs, increase flexibility, and own your own spare engine with our Revolving Credit Lease Engine Financing program (RCL). Our RCL program allows flexibility for airlines looking for long-term ownership of engine assets, more liquidity (including for future maintenance), and payment cash flows that mirror the way engines produce airline revenue.

ConstantThrust®

With ConstantThrust®, we cover the cost and risk of engine maintenance by replacing a removed engine with a serviceable engine from our portfolio of assets - saving airline customers the time, money, and risk associated with engine heavy maintenance. It’s a simple way to reduce engine change costs by half, eliminate expensive engine shop visits, and minimize end-of-lease aircraft lease return costs.

Pooling Program

As a finance engine, the Willis Lease Pooling Program is an inclusive membership program that keeps spares working for you. By providing easy access to spares when you need them and a convenient online leasing reservation system with pre-approved terms and conditions, the benefits of this global program become clear.

Keep Spares Working for you

The pooling program allows members to obtain the use of available spare engines from other members, including Willis Lease. As the fleets mature, we become the exclusive supplier of additional engines. In addition to eliminating the need for engine lease negotiations, the program uses a web-based reservation system that enables members to access detailed engine availability and condition information. Engines can be rented in minutes, complete with data packages and final contract documents produced and signed.

The Willis Lease Pooling Program specifically covers the CFM56-7B engines used on Boeing 737 Next-Gen aircraft. Currently, the following carriers are members of the Willis Lease Pooling Program.
