Serving the aviation industry

CIT’s legacy in the aviation business dates back more than 30 years. We offer both short- and long-term financing solutions with a focus on structure and an ability to effectively assess aircraft values, analyze underlying lease documents, and understand the back-end balloon risk to transactions. We are a senior secured lender focused on fixed wing commercial aircraft (narrowbody and widebody).
