The aviation industry is greatly affected by the continually changing economic climate. The often technical and complex issues, as well as the myriad of liabilities surrounding it, can make financing aircraft a potentially expensive minefield.

Despite the risks involved, aviation finance is a potentially lucrative venture. With the correct financing and security structures, in conjunction with effective tax planning, many of these liabilities can be identified and accounted for.

This self-paced, multi-media eLearning course, organised in association with course director Kenneth Gray, aims to provide an understanding of the key issues involved in aviation finance in order to identify and minimise the inherent risks and liabilities. The course utilises a variety of interactive exercises, videos and case studies to analyse the key legal, regulatory and documentary issues involved in aviation finance.
