Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE) is a global aviation corporation. DAE was founded by the Dubai government in 2006 with a $15bn capital base. The company originally had six divisions - DAE Capital, DAE Services, DAE Manufacturing, DAE Airports, DAE Engineering and DAE University. It has since shut all units except for leasing division DAE Capital and DAE Manufacturing.
DAE Capital specialises in aircraft leasing, financing and insurance with other management services.
On 12 November 2007 DAE signed letters of intent for aircraft order worth $27 billion at the 2007 Dubai Airshow. As of April 2009, DAE Capital had a fleet of 36 aircraft which are leased to various airlines around the world. In 2010, DAE was "struggling", and cancelled orders for 50 Airbus and Boeing airliners worth $8 billion.
