According to an article that appeared in the Australian Financial Review, the Macquarie Group is interested in GE’s helicopter leasing and finance division, Milestone Aviation Group.

The Review said, citing information on GE’s website, that GE’s helicopter fleet is worth more than $4 billion with related debt commitments of $400 million.
