Reviews

    Diana EROFEEVA Director of Legal Support Directorate at S7 Group From the beginning of registration via website, I was impressed by the well-functioning system of organizing the entire event. The speakers and the presentation of the material were very impressive, I liked the fact that the audience was not left without attention, all questions were answered completely and immediately. The Conference was rich and of high quality.
    We express our deep gratitude to all the organizers for organizing an event of this level. Such Conferences on aviation topics are very rarely held with a legal focus on documents and production activities of specialized companies.
    You have managed to create a space for brainstorming and lively discussions on the subject. Emotionally, the Conference was also very sincere, accepting and humane. This was felt in the attitude of both speakers and listeners. There is rarely a balance between the formal and the human at Conferences. Keep it up!

    Anton NIKIFOROV Head of Unmanned Aircraft System Section at Russian Post I express my gratitude to the Organizers of the Conference for the opportunity to gain unique experience in the field of air law. The exchange of best practices and experience is undeniably effective in solving the strategic challenges facing the industry. Some of them have already been resolved, but many more are yet to come. I wish productive work to the Delegates of future Conferences and hope for a constructive dialogue with representatives of the authorities.

    Anna Pirog Chief Specialist of the Passenger Revenue Management Department at Aeroflot For me personally, participation in the Conference is a unique experience, an opportunity to join various areas of civil aviation through the prism of law. And of course, to feel like a lawyer, to raise the level of your legal culture. Unique speakers, current topics of discussion panels, all this creates a sense of belonging, provides an opportunity to discuss issues on the industry's agenda. I wish the entire aviation legal community further development and expansion of cooperation, and I express my deep gratitude to the organizers of the Conference for their inexhaustible optimism and craving for beauty!

    Vafa BABAYEVA Head of Unit for Passenger Claims at Azerbaijan Airlines With a feeling of deep satisfaction I would like to congratulate all the Delegates of the 11th Air Law Conference, which was hosted for the first time by hospitable and sunny Baku. The Conference was effective, successful and productive, as specialists could listen not only to theory, but also to communicate with each other, getting acquainted with the experience of other companies, which is the main value of the event. Taking into account the trend of the legal sphere with its constant changes and emerging new legislative regulators and requirements, the value of the Conference only increases.
  • image
    Oksana ZOLOTAREVA Head of Legal Department at iFly Airlines The rich Conference Program allows you to consider both complex issues in aviation law and plunge into new issues in the industry. The lively and active interaction of speakers and delegates of the Conference made it possible to exchange experience, new views with high-level professionals and colleagues from other airlines. For me, as a lawyer, the Conference gave me the opportunity to feel involved in the formation of new trends and trends in aviation law. I wish the delegates of the Conference to continue to actively develop aviation law, support innovations and actively implement them in their work!

VENUE

For the Twelfth Air Law Conference, which will be held on October 6, 2023, a landmark object of Russian history was traditionally chosen, and this time – the magnificent Petrovsky Travel Palace. Depicted on a silver coin issued in 2015, it is a jewel himself – an architectural gem in the center of modern Moscow. Built by decree of Catherine II in 1776-1780, in honor of Russia's victory in the Russian-Turkish War, the Palace went down in history forever as early as 1812. From its windows, Napoleon looked at the fire of Moscow, waiting for a delegation with the keys to the conquered city. Not wait. But now numerous delegations and tourists are striving to visit the easternmost residence of Napoleon in Europe. For 75 years, starting in 1923, Zhukovsky Air Force Academy was located in the Palace, and the building was renamed the Palace of Red Aviation. It was here that the discoverer of Space Yuri Gagarin studied. Luxury and legend, history and modernity, delightful interiors and amazing acoustics of the halls – all this is it, the unique and unforgettable Petrovsky Travel Palace.
