10th Annual Corporate Aircraft Transactions Conference

This two-day conference, which will be held at the Marriott Marquis in New York City on July 11th and 12th, is sponsored by the Strategic Research Institute.

Topics include:
     Role of government in a changing industry
     What do manufacturer’s have up their sleeves?
     Partnering with commercial airlines
     FAA Part 135 changes and the industry’s reaction
     Current trends in leasing and financing options
     Protecting the lessor’s and lender’s interest
     What happens when things go wrong?

Frank L. Polk, leader of the firm’s aviation practice group, will be a featured speaker on the Cape Town Convention and Aircraft Protocol, an ambitious and unique international treaty that establishes comprehensive laws in each ratifying country dealing with essentially all aspects of buying, selling, leasing and financing aircraft and engines.  Polk’s conference presentation will focus on providing practical advice on how lenders and lessors can protect their assets both under the existing aircraft rules and under the forthcoming Cape Town Convention.

McAfee & Taft’s aviation attorneys have been involved in the U.S. ratification process of the treaty for several years.  That involvement has included meetings with Unidroit Aviation Working Group, the Federal Aviation Administration, the Department of Transportation and State Department, and leading practitioners around the world to discuss, understand and form various aspects of the Convention and its implementation around the world.
