Walkers to sponsor and speak at the upcoming Airline Economics Growth Frontiers New York Conference

Walkers global aviation team is pleased to sponsor and take part in the upcoming Airline Economics Growth Frontiers Conference on October 17 - 18 2018 in New York.

Cayman partner James Burch will be one of the featured panelists on a session focused exclusively on the recently closed Thunderbolt II aircraft securitization in which Walkers acted as Cayman Islands and Irish counsel. Thunderbolt II was an innovative aircraft securitization which introduced the first 144A / Reg S Aircraft Portfolio Shares to the market in a broadly distributed offering process where both the equity and debt securities were marketed and issued concurrently. The panel will be made up of the key players on the transaction, including Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP who instructed Walkers and acted as US counsel to Air Lease Corporation and the Issuers.

To read more about the Thunderbolt II transaction, please see Air Lease Corporation's press release.
