Aviation Attorneys

Lydecker provides comprehensive representation to both commercial and private aircraft carriers and owners. In the commercial context, our representation includes the litigation of issues related to aircraft property damage. We also represent commercial passenger and cargo owners in the defense of fuel and services liens. In addition to litigation, we assist in all corporate matters related to contract preparation for financing and purchase and sale of aircrafts. In the realm of private aviation, we represent various FAA Part 135 on-demand operators and air-taxi-for-hire brokers. Our representation includes the preparation of wet and dry leases, purchase and sale contracts, tax advice, and all related litigation. In addition to owners and carriers, we provide legal services to FAA Part 145 Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul facilities. Not only do we advise on Part 145 certificate compliance, but we defend and litigate the enforcement of statutory services and fuel liens.
