Associations Announce FAA Operational Control Briefing To Be Held In Newark

Over the last year, the FAA has been investigating aircraft leases between air charter operators and aircraft owners, the use of fictitious business names, and operational control systems. At the April 18th briefing, the FAA will present information that will impact all Part 135 air charter operators.

The all-day session will begin at 8:30 AM (registration opens) at the Sheraton Newark Airport Hotel. Presentations will begin at 9:00 AM and conclude at 4:30 PM. FAA officials participating in the session include:

Presentations will include information detailing the FAA’s new guidance relating to wet leases and operational control, including these topics:

  • What are the key factors in assessing operational control?
  • What is an illegal “wet lease”?
  • When is the use of assumed business names permissible?
  • Case studies of FAA enforcement action.
  • Implementation of the new guidance nationwide.

This special session will give attendees the opportunity to hear directly from the FAA on the crucial subject of operational control and ask specific questions of the regulators. Additional briefing sessions will be held across the country over the next few months. A final schedule of additional sessions and locations will be available soon; targeted locations include:
