Asset-Based Loans
We pioneered the asset-based loan, which is a non-recourse, no financial disclosure approach to lending. It is truly unique and unmatched in the banking industry:

  • Application Only – Simple one page application
  • Non Recourse – Limited, no personal or no corporate guaranty options available
  • No Financial Disclosure – No financial review or requirements options available

Credit-Based Loans
Our traditional credit program is for owners that desire maximum leverage. In general, this program allows for loan to value amounts up to 100%.

We offer a variety of leasing products. These include operating leases, finance leases, tax-oriented “true” leases, synthetic leases, and sale/leaseback transactions.

Equipment Covered
We fund a wide array of business aircraft. We will consider corporate jets, business jets or turbo props up to 20 years of age. Amortization is based on aircraft age, condition and usage. In accordance to Part 91, aircraft usage must primarily be business and personal. PNC Aviation Finance does not finance commercial aircraft or piston aircraft.
