Acumen Aviation Study published on Critical Asset Management

Dublin based Aircraft Lease Management Company Acumen Aviation has published a study on Critical Asset Management. Titled “What Lessors Need” by Donal Lowry, Head of Asset Management, the document studies three scenarios, accident / incident, financial distress and scheduled return, encountered by lessors. The study offers insight regarding the role that a lessor’s representative plays in successfully and efficiently managing them. The full document is available to download here.

In February the company announced a further expansion of its CAMO approval with both the addition of the Airbus A330 aircraft with all engine variants and 2– Registration CAMO approval from the Guernsey Director of Civil Aviation. The IAA recently expanded Acumen’s CAMO approval with the addition of the Airbus A330 aircraft. This latest addition will ensure that Acumen is equipped to provide a comprehensive CAMO suite to meet the growing need of its clients. Acumen also currently holds approvals for Bombardier Dash 8 / Q400 series; ATR 42/72 Series; Airbus 320 Family; Boeing 737 Classic and NG Series. In addition, and in direct response to the recent needs of Acumen’s clientele, the 2- Registration CAMO approval has been added. This allows Acumen further reach as it can now provide continuing airworthiness management of 2-Registered aircraft.

The Continuing Airworthiness Manager, Mr. James Flynn said “The addition of the A330 with all engine variants to our scope of approval is a welcome addition and will expand the services capability to our clients and to Acumen as a whole. The CAMO working within the organisation is ever expanding our 360-degree life cycle support to all our clients using the latest technologies & rich technical heritage to bring real time value to each client”
