World Star Aviation was established in 2003 by aircraft industry executive John E. Flynn, formerly president of Triton and executive vice president of GE Capital Aviation Services, and two other former members of Triton's senior management - Sean M. O'Connor and Garreth T. Slevin. The executive team is completed with Marc S. Iarchy and Yoram “Yoyo” Allalouf. The World Star Aviation team comprises of 26 aviation professionals with presence across the world to support our fleet.

The company provides a full, in-house asset and investment management service. This not only covers aircraft analysis and investment structuring but complete lease servicing, aircraft marketing, and technical inspection roles. World Star’s full-suite management capability, therefore, generates time and cost efficiencies and nurtures the generation of market-leading proprietary information right from the source.

Consequently, World Star’s relationship network spans across OEMs, airlines, part-out firms, banks, private equity and hedge funds, other lessors, and insurers, which in turn generates substantial deal flow.  

All of these factors combined have enabled the World Star Aviation portfolio to deliver attractive risk-adjusted returns to investors.

World Star Aviation currently services 67 aircraft and engines in 26 countries.
