Navigating complexities

Your Pitblado Law lawyer understands the unique complexities and nuances of aviation law. We stay on top of evolving Transport Canada regulations and industry-wide best practice to provide leading-edge support and helpful advice to our clients.

On the administrative law side of our aviation practice, we represent pilots, carriers, and approved maintenance organizations (AMOs) when they are accused of contravening Transport Canada regulations. Transport Canada has the authority to impose monetary penalties, suspend critical operating documents, and initiate summary convictions and indictments. We defend our clients vigorously and hold Transport Canada to the highest possible standards.

On the commercial side of our practice, we represent individuals and companies who are buying and selling aircraft and aviation businesses. We also act for lessors, banks, credit unions, and other financers of aircraft and aviation business purchases. Our experience in the aviation field mitigates risk and gives financial institutions the confidence to pursue these complicated transactions. We also work with equipment and parts manufacturers, insurers, and with professionals in other jurisdictions to ensure smooth transactions and uninterrupted operations.

Pitblado Law is actively involved in the aviation industry, and promote a wide range of aviation organizations, through direct involvement and by using our influence to encourage community and legislative support for the industry.

Our experience in the transportation practice area combined with our overall bench strength helps our transportation clients with all their legal needs.
