[1] We retrospectively reclassified $165.0 million of debt issuance costs from other assets to a direct reduction of the debt liability as of December 31, 2015. See Note 3-Summary of significant accounting policies.
[2] The weighted average interest rate for our floating rate debt is calculated based on the U.S. dollar LIBOR rate as of the last interest payment date of the respective debt, and excludes the impact of related derivative financial instruments which we hold to hedge our exposure to floating interest rates, as well as any amortization of debt issuance costs and debt discounts.
[3] AeroTurbine's assets served as collateral for the AeroTurbine revolving credit agreement.
