FTAI Aviation Acquires Full Ownership Stake in QuickTurn

NEW YORK and MIAMI, Dec. 01, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FTAI Aviation Ltd. (NASDAQ: FTAI) announced its full ownership stake in QuickTurn Engine Center (“QuickTurn”) following its acquisition of Unical Aviation Inc.’s 50% interest.

“We are excited to support FTAI’s growing pipeline of CFM56 engine maintenance with our additional capacity,” said Chris Nagle, Vice President of Commercial and Business Development at QuickTurn. “With the significant growth of module maintenance this year, we expect to become an industry leader in performing module swaps and light engine repairs.”
