“I was introduced to C.A. Southerland in July 2021 during a Complex International Aircraft Transaction, C.A.’s skillset, knowledge and international aircraft transactional expertise allowed us the opportunity to close the transaction in less than half the time we were initially quoted by an aviation law firm. As a result of this first experience, I then retained C.A. again on three more complex Aviation transactions in 2022 which involved the sale of a U.S. Part 135 Air Charter Company, the acquisition of another air charter business and successfully obtaining an aircraft registration that was held up in a trust for months - within 10 business days C.A. had the aircraft registration in our aircraft and we were in the air."

"Early in 2022 my company found itself in a precarious situation regarding our corporate aircraft. The aircraft was registered to a Trust that was not acceptable to our insurance company and as a result they were not going to reinsure the aircraft, so we had only a few months in which to rectify the situation before the current insurance expired. Our corporate pilot recommended C.A. Southerland, and we couldn’t be happier with both the outstanding professional and efficient way he managed to resolve the entire situation. We retained Southerland’s services in February of 2022, and by June the aircraft was fully insured and properly registered with an FAA approved Voting Trust Agreement. Given the complexities of the situation involving the previous Trust company, we are grateful for his obvious expertise in international aviation transactions and would most certainly retain him again should the need arise."
