AE Industrial Partners LP, a U.S.-based private equity firm concentrated on aerospace, defense and government services, space, power and utility services, and specialty industrials, has promoted Nathan Dickstein to a managing director and head of the AE Industrial Partners Aerospace Opportunities Fund.

Dickstein joined the firm in 2020 and brings 15 years of aircraft and engine leasing investment experience to the new positions. In his time before AEI, Dickstein originated and managed aircraft and aviation investment for several investment firms.

“I’m honored to lead an exceptional team that has been very active closing transactions with a variety of airlines and asset owners around the world,” said Dickstein. “Today’s market offers interesting investment opportunities as more aircraft owners look for flexibility, and I’m excited to lead the Fund as we incorporate creative strategies that appeal to both owners and investors.”
