At December 31, 2006, Aircastle had letters of intent to acquire six aircraft for an estimated purchase price of $230,850. Three acquisitions were completed during first quarter of 2007, one acquisition is anticipated to be completed in during the first half of 2007, and two of the letters of intent were subsequently cancelled during the first quarter of 2007. The purchase price of the aircraft under these letters of intent is subject to variable price provisions that typically reduce the final purchase price if the actual closing occurs beyond an initially agreed upon date.
