2012 Aircraft Registration Conference to Highlight Current Industry Developments
Fort Lauderdale, FL (Law Firm Newswire) January 6, 2012 – Aviation transaction professionals and attendees will be in Delray Beach, Florida February 9-10 to explore the latest developments in aircraft transactions, registration, and challenges in the industry. The 2012 Aircraft Registration Conference, “Aviation: On the Razor’s Edge of Recovery” is held at the Marriot Delray Beach.
Aviation transaction attorney Stewart H. Lapayowker will present a panel on the second day of the conference entitled “Letters of Intent (LOIs) and Purchase Agreements (PAs) – Are You Ready to Ride the Razor?” Lapayowker will present along with Stewart Pearl of Pearl Professional Corporation, Alvaro Pascotto of Morrison & Foerster, LLP and Jeff Wieand of Boston JetSearch, Inc. The panel will explore LOIs, offers to purchase, deposits and how they are used in the transaction.
“Factory-new aircraft and pre-owned aircraft purchases will be discussed in depth,” said Lapayowker, who is also the NBAA Tax Committee Vice Chairman. “We’ll go through the market perspectives of each side of a transaction – seller, buyer, and lender/lessor so you have a comprehensive idea of where the market stands right now.”
Some of the other hot topics to be discussed during the two-day event include the challenges of aircraft registration and non-citizen beneficiary trusts. The Cape Town Convention will be examined in another panel that will highlight what has worked well and best practices learned after five years of the Convention being in effect. Pending litigation will be focused on in another panel to make attendees aware of duties, lien issues, and other related concerns.
“The seminar will also highlight the opportunities of doing business in Asia and what pitfalls to look out for as you venture into this lucrative area,” said Lapayowker. “As the industry shows signs of some stability and growth, this market is definitely one to be aware of in the coming years.”
