GE Capital Aviation Services, the aircraft leasing unit of GE, announced the signing of an agreement to acquire Milestone Aviation Group, the Dublin-based helicopter lessor, for $1.775B.

The transaction remains subject to customary closing conditions, including regulatory approvals, and is targeted to close in 2015. Richard T. Santulli, chairman and CEO, Milestone Aviation Group, will serve as chairman of the helicopter leasing business and will become an officer of GE.
