Let Jetstream Law Handle the Work for You

Experience. Knowledge. Commitment.

A Law Firm Handling Domestic and International Business Jet Transactions.

There are many factors to consider when buying, operating and selling an aircraft. Start early and build a good team so you can enjoy your new plane.

We work with you and your team to identify your facts and your goals. Business aviation is subject to significant government regulation. We work to help achieve your goals despite complex and conflicting regulations. Talk to us to help you plan to avoid the future pain of dismantling a non-compliant aircraft structure that exposed you to civil penalties, additional state and federal taxes and possible loss of insurance. Your questions can be addressed by our 20+ years of experience handling aviation transactions.

I recently retained the legal services of Michelle Wade of Jetstream Aviation law, P.A, to handle a corporate jet acquisition. Michelle has thorough industry knowledge, extensive experience and a commitment to providing exceptional service. She was a consummate professional and readily available throughout the entire negotiation and purchase of our new corporate jet. Her attention to detail is unsurpassed. She expertly handled the letter of agreement, sales contract and closing documents. After the closing, she assisted us in setting up a dry lease agreement and will provide ongoing support for our operations as needed. In today's world of complex international aircraft acquisitions, I highly recommend that you reach out to Michelle Wade for your aviation legal needs.

As a VP and in-house counsel for Liberty Global focusing on aviation issues, I had the pleasure of working with Michelle Wade for the past 10+ years. She is a superb and highly qualified aviation attorney. She has vast experience in representing domestic and international clients in the operation, financing, purchase, sale, leasing, and private use of corporate aircraft, including related regulatory and tax compliance issues. I very much valued her practical advice and ability to timely and efficiently marshal closings, without exception. I highly recommend her!
