Legal Services for Aviation

We have a thorough understanding of the aviation sector in Malta & are able to assist clients with various services.


Malta’s continued success in the aviation industry can be attributed to investments which have been made in different areas some of which include aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) operations, production of aircraft components, flight-training, research and development and further investments in airside facilities (Safi Aviation Park). Since the implementation of the Aircraft Registration Act, Malta has continued to update and develop its policies and legislation and, as a result, it is regarded as having a robust and contemporary legislative framework.
