Charter Operations Feel the Impact of COVID-19

Monday, May 4, 2020

With business aviation flight operations across our nation and around the globe idled by the COVID-19 pandemic, what options are available to help operators weather this storm and when might we finally see our industry recover? “International travel is absolutely critical, particularly for long-haul aircraft,” notes aviation attorney David Mayer, a partner in the law firm Shackelford, Bowen, McKinley & Norton, LLP. “When you see evidence that, as a whole population globally we have confidence in travel across borders and across oceans, I think you will see business aviation respond fairly promptly.”

  • David Mayer, aviation attorney and partner at the law firm of Shackelford, Bowen, McKinley & Norton, LLP
  • W. Ashley Smith, CAM, president of aircraft charter, maintenance and aeromedical provider Jet Logistics
