Aviation Law Advocacy From An Attorney With A Pilot’s License

Aviation law is filled with immensely complex regulations and plenty of room for litigation. When you need representation that can help you remain in compliance with regulations, resolve challenges and proactively avoid expensive problems, rely on Sutterville Law Group.

I am attorney Karl Schweikert. Before establishing my law firm, I spent 15 years as a professional pilot. My clients include pilots, aviation industry professionals and business professionals throughout California who rely on aircraft for business purposes.

You can turn to me for service in the full spectrum of aviation law issues, including:

  • Aircraft purchases and sales
  • Pilot contracts
  • Hangar lease issues
  • Reporting violations
  • Accusations of a violation
  • Disputes
  • FAA enforcement
  • Flight clubs
  • Business aviation

I have represented clients in proceedings with bodies such as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). Some common violations I defend clients against include violating a time restriction on duty hours and failure to communicate.

Additionally, I am a panel attorney in the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association. If you are a member, you can hire me for a reduced rate.

A Lawyer’s Knowledge, A Pilot’s Experience

For more than 15 years, I served as a cargo pilot, a training captain and an FAA-certified check airman. This experience plays a vital role in my approach to aviation law. It is rare to find an attorney who also has firsthand experience in the aviation industry. Having been behind the controls myself, I understand how best to advocate for pilots in their legal challenges.
