In April, C&L Aerospace, a subsidiary of C&L Aviation Group, successfully completed the sale of the Boeing 757 in VVIP configuration to the Argentine government for presidential travel.
The transaction involved the trade-in of the current presidential Boeing 757 and a $25 million loan approved by the Argentine government to finance the purchase over ten years.
