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[edit]

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.[1] 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.[2]
