Liability for Air Operators - Brisbane

Jun 2016 |

Following our 2015 series, this seminar will focus on Air Operators and their liability both for, and to, pilots. Operators have a number of available options to engage the services of a pilot, but in doing so and depending on the legal structure chosen, their risk profile to liability can dramatically alter.

Glenn Biggs, Partner and Shannon O'Hara, Senior Associate will analyse and discuss:

  • Losses to third parties, the pilot, and the insurance policy response;
  • Analyse the different legal models, ranging from an employed pilot, to a self-employed or contracted pilot, and the key contract terms; and
  • The permutations of this risk profile when claims against the operator arise for operator negligence, pilot error or when the aircraft fails as a result of the operator, LAME or manufacturer.
