13th March 2014

Airstream International Group this week celebrates twenty five years of trading.

The company started from humble beginnings in a shared office in Slough close to London’s Heathrow airport. Airstream is now located in Guildford UK, where its dedicated team of professionals, including MD and co founder Peter Crutchfield, who started the company with Peter Graham back in 1989, are based.

The first transactions completed included arranging lessor financing for a McDonnell Douglas DC10-30 operated by World Airways and an Embraer EMB-120 Brasilia operated by Air Aruba.

The company subsequently worked closely with several manufacturers in the regional sector including BAE Systems (formerly British Aerospace), Short Brothers (now part of Bombardier) and Embraer on major leasing and advisory projects. Since then, the company has evolved into a leader in its chosen markets of aircraft remarketing, lessor financing and ACMI leasing.

Airstream has concluded transactions involving over five hundred aircraft since its formation. These have included large numbers of Embraer and Bombardier regional jets and ATR and De Havilland turboprops. With twenty five aircraft sold or leased last year and a strong start to 2014, the company looks forward to many more successful years providing professional services to the aviation industry.
