AELIS Group, the aviation financing and leasing specialist, has just signed a Letter of Intent for the purchase of ten INTEGRAL E aircraft and an optional ten extra aircraft. Headquartered in Slovakia, AELIS Group offers investment solutions across the world for aircraft owners, operators and investors. AELIS Group has developed a recognized expertise in regional and business aviation. The group actively contributes to the transition of aircraft towards decarbonated mobility and is investing in the initial training of airline pilots through its subsidiary Ready 4 Aero (R4A).

This order for ten INTEGRAL E, the electric version of INTEGRAL, the twin-seater training aircraft with an aerobatics capacity, will help R4A fulfill its ambitions. Headquartered in Kosice, Slovakia, R4A will offer a complete « Very Low Emission » airline pilot training as from 2023, with a zero emission objective as from 2025.

INTEGRAL E, whose first flight should take place in 2022, already has an orderbook of some sixty purchase intentions. The first aircraft will be delivered to AELIS in 2023 and deliveries will continue in 2024.

Jérémy CAUSSADE, President and co-founder of AURA AERO, said: « We are very happy and proud about this mark of confidence from AELIS Group, the European leader on the regional air transport segment. This order marks the group’s intention to develop eco-efficient air mobility, which is totally in line with the objectives and ambitions of AURA AERO. »

Philippe LIENARD, AELIS Group CEO, added: «We appreciate this collaboration with AURA AERO aimed at setting up the best industry practices in airline pilot training, associating Competency Based Training and Assessment (CBTA) and eco-responsibility. We are also eager to train the first regional decarbonated aviation pilots, a project we will tackle together with AURA AERO ».
