Aviation Litigation Support

aviation law book500 331AvCert, LLC provides support to aviation litigation cases through Mr. Doss’ expertise, training and experience. Mr. Doss’ philosophy in aviation is one of uncompromising standards.

Complying with minimum regulatory standards during manufacturing, flight operation and continuing airworthiness maintenance functions are rarely the highest standard of safety that can be achieved. The highest level of safety for flight crew members and the flying public is achieved by manufacturers, flight operators and maintenance professionals who identify, embrace and achieve more than a minimal standard for their product or service.

Mr. Doss received accident investigation training as an FAA Aviation Safety Inspector and has been certified as an expert witness in civil and criminal cases in both domestic and international courts.
