Legal Aspects of Aviation Leasing & Finance - Module

This module introduces the essential legal issues related to the Aviation Leasing and Finance sector. The aim of the module is to provide students with an understanding of the legal framework that governs the financing and leasing of aircraft and engines. The module is designed to strengthen the overall objective of the programme by setting the general issues in aviation finance and leasing within the law, both national and international. It will introduce students to an overview of the contractual relationship before exploring in greater depth the characteristics that make aviation contracts different from more normal type arrangements. It will further explore the nature of finance and leasing contracts in the aviation sector, including the use of operating leases and special purpose companies, the liability of the parties to such arrangements, how security interests are protected and the mechanism for the resolution of disputes in these types of transactions.
