Applications are open for the Diploma Centre’s popular course, the Diploma in Aviation Leasing and Finance, which begins on 30 January 2020. Ireland is internationally recognised as the global hub for aviation leasing and finance, with each of the top ten global aircraft lessors enjoying a presence here. Half of the world’s fleet of leased aircraft is owned, leased, or managed in Ireland. The major industry players have been attracted by Ireland’s stable political regime, membership of the EU, favourable time zone, and talented workforce, not to mention our legal and regulatory advantages. In addition, Ireland’s network of over 60 double tax treaties, combined with the absence of withholding tax on aircraft lease rentals and a corporate tax rate of 12.5%, makes Ireland a commercially attractive place to set up and run an aircraft leasing company.
This advanced-level diploma provides comprehensive coverage of the key aspects of the aviation leasing and finance industry. It aims to deliver an in-depth analysis of the core legal and practical issues that parties typically encounter in aircraft leasing and finance transactions.
The course comprises 11 modules and closes with a career panel event. This will afford students the opportunity to get expert advice from professionals in the industry about how to enter the aviation industry or how to successfully move sectors within the aviation industry.
Applications are invited from qualified lawyers; those who have a minimum of two years' full-time experience in the aviation industry; and those have successfully completed the Certificate in Aviation Leasing and Finance.
