National Business Aviation Association
Jonathan M. Epstein

Aviation attorney Jonathan Epstein contributed to a National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) resource intended to provide members with an introduction to the rules that relate to exporting aircraft from the United States. He begins by providing a general background on export requirements. The article focuses specifically on permanent exports, where the aircraft is physically exported, usually under its own power, from the U.S. as part of a sale, lease or transfer of possession and control to a foreign person. Mr. Epstein also outlines important details on the Electronic Export Information (EEi) filing process, including when it is required, who is responsible for making the EEi filing and how to correct a failure to make a past EEi filing. Additionally, he describes key export restrictions to be wary of and overall best practices to ensure compliance with export requirements.
