Tens of thousands of AOPA members have discovered the value of AOPA's Legal Services Plan. More than 80,000 members have enrolled in the plan that has been providing legal services and representation for AOPA members since 1983.
The AOPA Legal Services Plan helps protect members against FAA enforcement actions that can suspend or even revoke their pilot certificates. Enrolled members can use one of the more than 600 AOPA panel attorneys; or the plan will pay for the services of a non-panel attorney. In addition to legal representation in case of an FAA enforcement action, the plan will provide reviews of aircraft tiedown agreements, leasebacks, and rental contracts. The plan also will help with purchase documents.
"AOPA continues to see dramatic increases in enrollees in the AOPA Legal Services Plan," said AOPA Senior Vice President of Products and Services Karen Gebhart. "Since 2000, AOPA has seen more than a 50-percent growth in enrolled members going from just over 50,000 to the new milestone of 80,000. We believe that this service is invaluable and has proven itself over and over again when helping members protect their certificates."
The AOPA Legal Services Plan is a product offered to AOPA members only. For less than $30 per year, members can enroll in the private pilot privileges coverage of the plan and gain easy, affordable access to attorneys versed in aviation law.
