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.

Stewart H. Lapayowker, P.A. focuses his law practice on
corporate aircraft transactions both domestic and worldwide.

Aviation transaction attorney Stewart H.

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.”
