The use of airspace and outer space has been increasing for decades. The development of aviation in 2020/21 has suffered a setback, but will consolidate.

At the same time, structures that have evolved are facing new challenges. A variety of legal issues arise from increasing digitalization, questions about sustainability, the popularity of drones and the first air taxis, whose manufacturers are seeking approval.

The use of space is intensifying by private actors, but must make do with a legal framework that is not yet designed for these commercial business activities, at least in Germany.

In short, anyone involved in aviation and space activities is not only moving through different airspaces and "new space", but also in tension between innovation, liability, technology and data security.

We offer comprehensive advice and representation in all aviation and space law matters for aviation and technology companies, pilots, aircraft and satellite owners, infrastructure operators and suppliers, as well as air sports clubs, and also represent them before authorities and courts.
