Aircraft Transactions

Aircraft transactions are complex. Building a team of experts will reduce costs, help achieve regulatory and tax compliance, and add value by creating a tailored plan for your jet, whether you are buying a new jet or selling your current jet.


Operations & Compliance

Jetlaw’s partners and senior advisors are pilots. We understand the FAA compliance challenges that your flight department handles because we handle those challenges too. When it comes to Federal Aviation Regulation compliance, we wrote the book on it. Jetlaw will work with you to structure your aircraft operations that keep you in compliance with FAR Part 91 or Part 135 and with IRS tax requirements.

Our depth of knowledge and experience working with the Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation, Internal Revenue Service, Customs and Border Protection, and Transportation Security Administration can help you avoid and mitigate enforcement situations.



Jetlaw’s team has firsthand experience with airport operations, management, and airport law. Trust our FAA airport compliance attorneys to handle a comprehensive range of airport sponsor and tenant matters, including:

  • Construction and Modernization Projects
  • Airport Lease and Concession Agreements
  • AIP Grant Applications and Grant Assurance Compliance
  • Environmental Assessments
  • Minimum Standards
  • Complex Tax Matters


State and federal tax planning plays an integral role in every aircraft sale and acquisition. From sales tax to federal excise tax, careful planning and structuring before closing may successfully eliminate or defer tax due on the ownership or operation of the aircraft.


Mergers & Acquisitions

We know mergers & acquisitions because we know the aviation industry and the regulations. If you are acquiring an aviation business or partnering with an investor, our team will help you mitigate risks and close the deal on time. We can help you whether you are a CEO, General Counsel, or Private Equity.
