Practice Areas


In this webinar, co-presenters, Alan Farkas and Jack Harrington, cover contractual liability that affects an aircraft owner or renter through hangar leases, airport use agreements, and agreements with FBOs or other entities. It references aviation-related waivers that might either limit or increase an airman’s exposure to potential liabilities. You are provided with specific examples of common injury and property damage claims that arise in aircraft operations. Alan and Jack offer their expertise on effective utilization of aviation releases and their legal effect. This webinar also addresses the realities of aviation insurance coverage in this day of increasing premiums and limited liability coverages. Finally, council members explain the relationship between the aircraft owner’s or renter’s insurance coverage, and the coverage provided by EAA for Young Eagles flights.
