Attempting to collect on a debt when an aircraft is involved can be a complex and complicated process. If you need to file an airplane claim of lien, understanding how the procedure works are critical. At the National Aviation Center, we can help you in filing your claim and beginning the process of obtaining what you are owed.
When Can You Impose an Airplane Claim of Lien?
Sometimes, in business and in life in general, debts can go unpaid. Aircraft and aircraft maintenance can be no exception. If the owner of an aircraft is indebted to another party for fuel or hangar costs, repairs, or other expenses, it may be possible for the creditor to file a lien against the airplane.
Typically, this will require the filing of a civil lawsuit, and as such, the services of an attorney. Once your case goes to court and is ruled on by a judge, you will have a sense of whether or not you can impose a lien. If the conditions are appropriate, you will then need to submit an official filing with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
The claim of lien form required by the FAA will need a collection of pertinent information. You will need to provide your name, title (if filing on behalf of an organization), and email. You will also need some information about the plane, including its registration number (n-number), as well as its manufacturer name, model assignment, and serial number.
You should also be prepared to provide the amount of your claim as well as documentation of the work performed. Once this information has all been added to the claim of lien, you will then need to sign it and send it to the FAA with an accompanying fee.
