FLY Leasing: “2011 was a transformational year for FLY as we grew our fleet from 59 to 109 aircraft, an 85% year-on-year increase. This significant growth was achieved without raising any additional equity capital, and we expect that our larger fleet will have a positive impact on adjusted net income and EPS in future reporting periods,” Colm Barrington, CEO.
