The 2011 Aircraft Registration Conference at the Naples Grande Beach Resort, the Waldorf Astoria Collection, will highlight the many changes in the aviation business and as well as legal matters.
Stewart Lapayowker, an aviation transaction attorney, will speak about aircraft transactions and how drafting and negotiating letters of intent are critical to the aircraft purchase process. “Year-end trends are pointing to an increase in business aircraft acquisition activity, although there is still inventory as a result of loan defaults and repossessions,” said Lapayowker, who also hosts a bi-weekly Internet radio talk show, “Plane Talk Radio”. “This conference is a must for anyone involved in business aviation. You’ll come away with insight that will help you throughout the year.” Lapayowker’s firm is also a sponsor of the conference.
At the conference, organized by the National Business Aviation Association, the FAA’s Manager of Aircraft Registration, Walter Binkley, will discuss the FAA’s new re-registration rule. And the FAA’s Aeronautical Center Counsel, Joseph Standell, will speak about the status of foreign trusts, re-registration and enforcement actions.
A panel will separately focus on loan and lease defaults, remedies, and repossessions. Day one will conclude with the presidents of the National Business Aviation Association, National Air Transportation Association and the General Aviation Manufacturers Association discussing the latest and most important regulatory and legislative developments.
With many international transactions increasing, the second day of panels will cover importing and exporting, customs, ITAR and EAR considerations, closings and orchestrating deals in South and Latin America.
