Product description


'Aviation law is not just a subject for lawyers. The nuances of aviation law affect the day-to-day life of operational aviation professionals. Criminalization can make or break a company's safety culture. The Convention for Mobile Equipment can make it possible for a country to operate the latest aircraft, or force it to live with surplus wrecks. Few people really understand how these pieces fit together. This book does it well, and is important for anyone who is trying to understand how international aviation works.'William R. Voss, President and CEO, Flight Safety Foundation, Washington DC, US'Aviation has an intrinsically international context and so does the law governing it. Indeed, the cornerstone of aviation regulation is founded in international conventions, particularly the Chicago convention. In this text the author astutely identifies and explains the specialised nature of aviation law and how that law applies in different legal systems throughout the world, with an emphasis on commonality in the law. This text is an essential tool not just for lawyers, but for all who work in the aviation industry. --'John Dawson President, Aviation Law Association of Australia and New Zealand

"No other field of human endeavour is so directly and intrinsically dependent upon the international context than is the case with aviation. This book explains, in a digestible yet articulate style, the basis and structure of the law as it applies to the modern world of aviation. From a personal perspective International Aviation Law provided me with a far greater appreciation of the extent to which the law and regulations impinges upon virtually every facet of the industry. More importantly, a good understanding of aviation law could help avert a major disaster for the Company. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has any involvement in the aviation industry. --'Lim Kim Hai, Executive Chairman, Regional Express, Australia

This publication is a must have for the dedicated aviation practitioner including pilots, aircraft engineers, airport operators, air traffic controllers and aviation insurers. In saying that, others, such as students studying aviation law who are passionate about this ever changing industry would also find International Aviation Law beneficial. --Aviation Business Asia Pacific, March/April 2013
