Aerlex Law Group President Stephen Hofer will attend the National Aircraft Finance Association’s (NAFA) annual conference, April 18th through April 21st, at the Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo, Florida. This year’s conference is NAFA’s 51st annual gathering.
Stephen Hofer has represented both borrowers and lenders in whole and fractional aircraft transactions for over 30 years and he has successfully closed hundreds of sales and purchases on every continent except Antarctica, resulting in a deep and broad understanding of the wide range of issues that can affect the acquisition, sale and operation of private aircraft. In addition to aircraft transactions, Steve also has decades of experience with FAA and DOT regulatory matters, litigation in state and federal courts, charter operators and flight departments, aircraft maintenance issues and insurance requirements – all of which can directly impact the relationships among aircraft owners and operators, borrowers and lenders.
The annual NAFA conference offers members a chance to learn more about current industry trends relating to aircraft transactions, financing and leasing, as well as the broader national and international economic picture and its impact on the business aircraft financing industry. This year’s keynote speaker is Jeff Kreisler, a Princeton-educated lawyer turned award-winning comedian, best-selling author and champion for behavioral economics. Jeff uses behavioral science, real life and humor to understand, explain and change the world. Also on the agenda will be an opportune moment to hear the status and outlook for the US economy and monetary policy from Dr. LaVaughn Henry, senior economist for the Council of Economic Advisors in the Executive Office of the President of the United States.
NAFA is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the success of lending institutions and other organizations involved in the aircraft financing and lending industry. NAFA also works with government agencies to help develop greater understanding of the industry and its needs.
