We are looking forward to delivering best in class results from the teardown for our aviation fund investors together with VAS.”

Chief Executive Officer. “We are gratified that Dr. Peters Group has once again selected VAS for our technical expertise and parts marketing capabilities, further demonstrating that VAS is, indeed, the go-to source for revenue-maximizing end-of-life services for airline operators, OEMs, and lessors around the globe.”
