The ownership of your aircraft, whether it be a corporate aircraft or an aircraft only for your private use must be set up with an eye toward (1) how you want to use the aircraft and (2) what assets you have that need protection from the inherent liability risks of aircraft operations and ownership.
Carriere & Little work with your current legal and accounting advisors to design ownership and operation structures that allow for the use of your aircraft in full compliance with the Federal Aviation Association (FAA) and Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations and will honor your businesses, assets, and personal use requirements. Already own an aircraft? No problem. Our business aviation attorneys are happy to work with your advisors to review your current aircraft ownership, operations, and use to identify any potential concerns or problems in light of the FAA and DOT regulations or unnecessary risk exposure.
Whether we are helping establish new ownership and operation structures for private aircraft or making adjustments to existing structures, our aviation business attorneys have the business and corporate law experience help you establish or convert ownership entities to support the recommended structures.
