Pilot training and certification in advanced avionic systems is critical for aviation safety.
Litigation support by an aviation expert witness could include reverse engineering, writing an expert report, and expert testimony at deposition and at trial. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a qualified expert with prior expert witness experience. In addition, clients may seek an aviation industry expert for pre-litigation consulting work. An expert witness needs to not only have expertise in the subject, an expert witness must possess the ability to explain evidence to a juror.
