Corporate Philosophy

SAEL takes flight with a dynamic team of over 25 professionals hailing from over 10 countries, each contributing key knowledge and experience across various sectors of the aviation industry. From marketing, technical, credit, and beyond, our diverse talent pool encompasses a wide spectrum of expertise. Our management team comprises industry stalwarts who have not only weathered numerous aviation cycles but also witnessed the transformative evolution of jet engines.

We take pride in this organic growth strategy, made possible through our strong foundation– backed by Sumitomo Mitsui Finance and Leasing Company (SMFL), a leading Japanese financial institution known for its extensive financial capabilities and long-term commitment to the engine leasing business. 

Our strategy is driven by our corporate philosophy, which is the guiding force behind every decision and action we take. It embodies our core values, vision, and commitment to stakeholders.
