Washington Aviation Group, PC
and the Law Offices of Jason A Dickstein


The Washington Aviation Group provides training workshops and classes all over the country. Many clients find it is more economical to bring the trainer to their facility than to send their employees out for training. We are happy to arrange training at your facility or at a facility in your area.


Aviation Law for Aviation Professionals:

A careless mistake in the aviation industry can mean more than a fine – it can mean loss of an aircraft and a life. For this reason the aviation industry has always been a leader when it comes to safety. Safety regulations represents the core of what the FAA does, but the laws and regulations have grown to a point where they seem too complicated; however, in the aviation industry today, everyone needs to understand the laws that apply to the work that they do. To meet the industry’s needs, the Washington Aviation Group conducts aviation law courses that make it easy to understand the laws and regulations we need to understand and work with every day. The Washington Aviation Group conducts these courses for private companies and through trade associations (including ASA and NATA). These courses may be tailored to the particular needs of your organization.

Approved Parts, Unapproved Parts, and Parts Documentation:

This class features an examination of the policy basis for parts rules, including a look at U.S. and European parts reglations. After understanding the regulatory and policy framework within which parts rules must abide, this class then looks specifically at categories like unapproved parts, approved parts, acceptable parts and counterfeit parts. Aftetr identifying the differnt categories of parts, the class also examines documentation standards to identify documentation expectations and requirements. This class is especially useful for people whoneed to be able to identify parts categories, like receiving inspectors and parts purchasers; it is also useful for those who need to understand how aircraft parts fit into government approval categories, like certification engineers, quality inspectors, and auditors. By examining the The Washington Aviation Group conducts these courses for private companies and through trade associations (including ASA and AEA). These courses may be tailored to the particular needs of your organization.

Protecting Your Certificate

From time to time, government enforcement personnel make mistakes. Aviation regulation is such a complicated field that enforcement related mistakes are bound to happen, but the real victim of a mistake is the company that is the unfortunate object of the mistake. The harm from enforcement errors can be minimized! In conjunction with the Aircraft Electronics Association, the Washington Aviation Group has beens proud to offer this workshop, which is designed to show repair stations and other certificate holders how to protect their most valuable business asset – their FAA issued certificates – when an inspector threatens to bring an enforcement action.

Shipping Hazardous Materials

All hazmat employees are now required to be trained and tested. Federal regulations define hazmat employees broadly, so many people in an aviation business are required to be trained – from the warehouse personnel who stock the materials to the secretary who types the shipping papers! The Washington Aviation Group conducts hazardous materials classes throughout the country. Our classes are taught instructors who have earned instructor certificates from both the U.S. Department of Transportation and IATA. The course addresses the regulations that aviation professionals need to know – both the United States Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) found in Title 49 and the ICAO Technical Instructions (as published in the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations). Attendance at one of these classes will meet the training subject requirements found in the federal regulations that apply to aviation personnel under both Title 49 and Title 14.   For more information on registrering for an established class, click here.

Protecting Your Intellectual Property

Undertanding the intellectual property laws can be vital to your success in the industry.  Some companies are using the intellectual property laws as a hammer to 'punish' their competition.  Other companies may wish to misappropriate YOUR intellectual property.  Either way, you can wind up the victim and suffer millions of dollars worth of judgments or damages.  Many people find the intellectual property laws to be complex and difficult - they don't have to be! We can explain the basic laws of intellectual property in a way that is simple and understandable for the busy aviation industry person.  This course focuses on how to protect your own company's intellectual property while at the same time establishing procedures to avoid violating someone else's intellectual property.

U.S. Export Regulations - Compliance Made Simple

U.S. export regulations are a complicated mosaic of overlapping rules published and enforced by several different regulatory agencies. Exporting aircraft parts can be particularly challenging, because so many aircraft parts can be dual-use or require licensing. This class examines the regulations of the Commerce (EAR), State (ITAR) and Treasury Departments and maps out a reasonable process for ensuring copmliance with all three in a step-by-step plan that anyone can follow.
