AirCastle: “For our industry, 2010 was a watershed year during which demand for passenger and freight aircraft rose above pre-recession levels and growth rates returned to their long-term trajectory, buoyed by the strong performance of emerging markets. We are encouraged by continuing improvements across key industry metrics including rising traffic levels and all-time high load factors while the supply of parked current generation aircraft remains very low,” Ron Wainshal, CEO.
