2015 Aviation update - Melbourne

Aug 2015 |

In this seminar, the Aviation team covers a range of recent developments and key issues affecting aircraft operators, insurers and brokers.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Dangerous Flights Abroad: Australia was stunned in 2010 when Sundance Resources mining executive Ken Talbot and others were killed from the crash of a small aircraft in West Africa. The 2015 Queens Bench case concerning that ill-fated flight raises a number of questions for aircraft operators, charterers and employers.
  • Walking The Tightrope: A discussion on a range of recent cases highlighting the vulnerabilities faced by brokers in managing their myriad roles and duties of disclosure and the provision of commercial insurance advice. 
  • Damages under the Montreal Convention: After so many years, Montreal Convention based legislation is still being tested; this time on the treatment and damages available for non-physical injury claims.
  • Accident Investigation Reports: How probative are they and how can parties involved in civil liability litigation take advantage of such evidence?
