Located in the Air Capital of the World, Hinkle attorneys have significant experience the aviation field. Our attorneys devote a substantial portion of their practice to aviation transactional matters, representing local, national, and international clients. We have helped both individuals and industry leaders in many aspects of aviation matters including the planning, negotiation, purchase, sale, leasing, and financing of large and mid-size business jet aircraft and helicopters under Part 91 operations.
Since many of our aviation clients are international we can advise and assist them on the purchase and sale transactions while guiding the parties to the appropriate business structures for compliance with Federal Aviation Regulations. In additions to buyers and sellers of aircraft, we advise and represent aviation brokers, dealers, management companies, lenders and fixed based operators. We can also support in the engagement of cross-border transactions with the registration of aircraft in foreign jurisdictions.
Additionally, Hinkle Law Firm LLC’s litigation team has drafted operating agreements and defended pilot certificate actions, aircraft manufacturers, dealers and independent operators in the airline industry. We have handled cases arising from the sale, to occasional repair of aircraft and airframes and component manufacturers in product liability matters arising from airplane crashes.
