Some FAA benefits

I went to an FAA-sponsored seminar this week at the local airport. It was on the legal and liability aspects of being a pilot, owner, or operator. The main speakers were two attorneys who deal with aviation accidents, one on the plaintiff's side and one on the defense side. Both had excellent experiences to share about how liability lawsuits work, which parties can be sued, and what kind and amount of insurance is helpful. They also touched on various asset-protection methods and estate planning methods, although they did not have a lot of time to get into those aspects. Very good!

I picked up a copy of a bimonthly magazine named FAA Aviation News: Aviation Safety from Cover to Cover. Lots of good articles - I'm going to subscribe! Check this out: full back issues are available on line in PDF format at
