Aviation law governs the operation of aircraft — from overall aerodynamics to the increasingly sophisticated technology inherent to the on-board equipment — including the Federal Aviation Regulations (“FARs”) and procedures applicable to pilots and air traffic controllers. It also governs the maintenance of aviation facilities, and airworthiness and maintenance standards for the many types of aircraft in use today.
As implied by referencing the FARs, the main source of aviation law is federally based. From the Air Commerce Act of 1926, through the Federal Aviation Act in 1958, and subsequent actions prompted by such things as the air traffic controllers’ strike in 1981 and the 2001 terrorist attacks, aviation law is complex and multi-faceted. It demands a knowledge not just of the law, but of aviation itself.
