RAWLE & HENDERSON has been involved in representing parties in aviation matters since the 1940s. We have experience in all areas of aviation law, including the representation of insurers with respect to coverage disputes and first party claims, and the representation of insureds of aviation liability underwriters, with respect to all kinds of personal injury and property damage claims. Our work has involved the representation of pilots, flight instructors, fixed base and air taxi operators, and scheduled and non-scheduled airlines. We also are involved extensively in the defense of manufacturers of aircraft power plants and component parts in product liability claims.
