"The rising CFM56 engine lease rates are driven by increased interest rates, delivery shortages, and reliability issues with next-gen aircraft. Airlines are delaying maintenance events and using up green-time, which we expect to lead to significant growth in shop visits over the coming years. Given the escalating costs of OEM parts and servicing duration, FTAI Aviation Ltd. (NASDAQ:FTAI) is well-positioned to offer more cost and time-effective solutions though its modular factory and soon-to-be approved PMA parts. In recent quarters, FTAI's modular factory has demonstrated remarkable success, boasting numerous repeat customers and a steadily expanding customer base."
