Commercial Finance:
Aircraft Financing Subcommittee

Who We Are

The Aircraft Financing Subcommittee provides a forum for lawyers and other participants in aircraft financing to discuss issues and recent developments in the U.S. and international aviation financing industry. The Subcommittee focuses on current legal issues and practices as well as on emerging trends in aircraft financing techniques and structures.

Report of the Subcommittee Chair

NEXT SUBCOMMITTEE MEETING: Our next Subcommittee meetings will be on April 10 and 11 at the ABA Business Law Spring Meeting in Los Angeles. Our meetings will take place at the JW Marriott Los Angeles at L.A. Live and/or the Los Angeles Convention Center. Information & registration for the Annual Meeting are available at the ABA website.

On the morning of April 10, we will again host a primer session, primarily for attorneys and law students interested, but lest experienced in aircraft financing (but anyone is welcome). The purpose of the primer session is to both provide background information on the presentations that will be made during the Subcommittee meetings and to get the attendees better acquainted with one another and the Subcommittee. Our meeting schedule and room locations are:

Aircraft Financing (Primer Session) - Thu, April 10, 10:30AM - 12PM
JW Marriott - Gold Ballroom Salon 2, First Level

Aircraft Financing (Session 1) - Thu, April 10, 2PM - 5PM
JW Marriott - Gold Ballroom Salon 2, First Level

Aircraft Financing (Session 2) - Fri, April 11, 9AM - 12:30PM
JW Marriott - Platinum Ballroom Salon I, Second Level

International Lease Finance Corporation (ILFC) and Norton Rose Fulbright will host and sponsor a complimentary cocktail reception at ILFC's offices (10250 Constellation Blvd. just off of Avenue of the Stars) on the evening of April 10 starting at 6:00pm.

Our Subcommittee Dinner (an extra cost of $135) will immediately follow the cocktail reception. The dinner will be held at Craft Los Angeles (10100 Constellation Blvd. at Avenue of the Stars, near ILFC) and begins at 7:45pm. The cost for dinner will be $135 per person.

Please block that evening and expect to attend. The reservation form and checks (made out to Phillip Durham) for the dinner should be sent to:

Phillip Durham
Holland & Knight LLP
31 West 52nd Street
NY, NY 10019

FUTURE SUBCOMMITTEE MEETING(S): There will no longer be a Subcommittee Meeting at the ABA Annual Meeting. Instead, our next meeting will be at the new Business Law Annual Meeting in Chicago, September 10-13 at the Hyatt Regency Chicago (more information on the ABA website).
