Webinar: Government Contracts, False Claims, and the Aviation Industry

An essential aspect of the aviation industry is doing business with the United States Government. Whether you’re an airline, a charter or cargo operator, an MRO, a ground handler or a manufacturer, the considerations associated with having the federal government as a client is a world apart from operating in the commercial space. During this webinar, aviation and government contract attorneys from LeClairRyan will discuss not only the basics, but recent developments in dealing with the United States Government as your customer.

Webinar: The Business of Drones … Operating in a Commercial World

In just a few short years, the operation of unmanned aircraft has gone from a rarity to big business. According to the FAA’s newly released Aerospace Forecast, the total number of commercial UAS in the United States is expected to triple by 2023. Much of this growth is expected to come from a dramatic increase in the number of businesses offering “drones as a service.”
