How do you register your aircraft in New York?

Whether you are using it for business or for pleasure, owning an aircraft can be extremely rewarding. It is imperative, however, that you register your aircraft with the Federal Aviation Administration to avoid any registration violations. In order to be eligible to register your aircraft, the plane may not be currently registered in any other country. The owner of the aircraft must also be a citizen of the United States or a citizen of another country that is legally admitted to live permanently in the U.S. 

Engine failure incident at least the 4th of its kind since 2016

When you board a plane in New York or another part of the nation, you probably feel confident that the aircraft has undergone careful checks for safety, and that there are not defective aircraft components that could potentially threaten your life. Regrettably, however, this is not always the case, as evidenced by a string of dangerous incidents involving jet engine failures that released debris into the plane or air. At Kreindler & Kreindler LLP, we work to hold airlines accountable when defective aircraft components threaten lives, and we have helped many clients hurt in related incidents pursue appropriate recourse.

Mechanical failure and commercial flights

When people board a commercial flight, they assume that they plane is mechanically sound and ready for flight. Mechanical plane failure, however, is one of the main factors leading to deadly plane accidents in the United States and throughout the world alongside weather and human error. Failure to operate or improper design of critical airplane parts, such as the fuel tanks, navigation system, landing gear, spoilers, rudder, stabilizers, wing components and engine controls, can be catastrophic. Boeing released a study reporting that approximately 20 percent of all commercial air accidents are attributed to mechanical failure.

Plane crashes in Mexico after severe-weather takeoff

When residents of New York board planes bound for national or international destinations, they typically rely on the plane's pilot and crew to determine whether conditions are appropriate for flying. When pilots second-guess their decisions to fly once the aircraft has already taken off, however, getting back on the ground is not always so easy, and the passengers and crew aboard a recent flight leaving Durango, Mexico, learned this the hard way.

A look at automatic pilots

In this day and age of advanced technology, automated pilot technology is on the brink of taking over the aviation industry. It isn't uncommon for pilots to switch over to autopilot for a period of time while the plane cruises at a steady altitude during a flight. Now experts are considering removing the human pilot from the picture and using autopilot to fly the plane. Although planes that are piloted using artificial intelligence may eliminate human error, it may also increase the need for litigating cases that involve failed software design, development, manufacture, implementation and utilization.
