Airplanes are an essential part of day to day life for many people. They provide transportation, communication, and recreation for Minnesotans, but are rarely straightforward to legally operate and license. This is the purpose of aviation law: to protect and educate businesses and pilots on the guidelines of recreational and corporate air travel.
The breadth of aviation law expands to many areas, from insurance liability to regulations to financing. Ensuring that your business is following best practices in regards to aviation policy requires extensive knowledge of the law; this is where we can help.
Making sure your aircraft is insured is one of the most important things a pilot or a company can do. When things go wrong they often go catastrophically wrong, and you need to make sure you are covered. We can help you analyse your current coverage, review contracts, and defend you in the case of a denial.
Aircraft ownership and Leasing
Purchasing or leasing an aircraft, whether for business or recreation, requires what can feel like an endless amount of paperwork. While it may feel as though only a fraction of what you’re signing is important, we can assure you that it’s important to read 100 percent of the contract. If you don’t have the time and patience for such an activity, we are practiced in the area of contract review.
Whether you are a pilot or a mechanic or are looking to be a pilot or a mechanic, you will need to go through the licensing process. When things go wrong it isn’t just the pilot and passengers that are in danger: everyone under the flight path is at risk. By ensuring every mechanic and pilot that works on an aircraft is fully licensed, the aviation industry is safer. If you are having trouble getting licensed or have had your license suspended or revoked for wrongful reasons we can help you understand the issue and get you reinstated.
In the worst-case scenarios, you want to know that you have a strong defense on your side. In aviation accident cases, we work hard to investigate the causes of the accident, determine fault, and evaluate damages. We make sure the insurance companies are held accountable for the coverage they agreed to, and not a penny less.
