While last year ended with sighs of relief and the commonly expressed sentiment that “at least 2020 is finally over,” new challenges nonetheless await the aviation industry in 2021.

A new presidential administration brought a new philosophy to aviation rulemaking, enforcement and infrastructure spending. The COVID-19 vaccine is here, but new and more stringent federal mask mandates are in place for air travelers, and new COVID-19 variants are spreading around the globe along with a growing call for vaccine passports. Lawsuits involving federalism, privacy and airspace ownership are reaching appellate courts with surprising results.

Join Mark Dombroff and Mark McKinnon for a 90-minute interactive webinar covering recent developments in aviation, including:

  • Updates on COVID-19 regulations and what to expect in the future
  • The impact on international air travel stemming from the slow rollout of vaccines in Europe
  • An explanation of COVID-19 travel documents and the EU Green Passport Program

  • Important new case developments regarding federal preemption of aviation and privacy
  • The effect of new White House and Department of Transportation leadership on aviation regulation and oversight
  • A look at how the aviation industry will fare in the scramble for infrastructure funds
  • Understanding why the new UAS rules were delayed and how the new rules will impact unmanned aircraft for the rest of this year
