The Aviation Law Committee is now the Aviation and Aerospace Committee! This name change reflects the changing nature of the industry to cover a wider scope outside of the atmosphere immediately above the earth.
Aviation Law Committee
The outgoing Director General of IATA, Giovani Bisignani, and the Aviation Law Committee strongly believe that Asia-Pacific is the future of aviation. Asia understands that it is a big player. New airports are being built, airlines are expanding, air services are being liberalised and manufacturers are increasingly relying on plants in Asia to build and service hulls, equipment and parts. Meanwhile, the development of aviation in Europe and the US is stagnant.
The Aviation Law Committee is concerned with almost every aspect of law concerning the aerospace and aviation industries (e.g. airlines, airports, service providers, manufacturers and suppliers, regulators, lessor, insurers and other entities) globally including:
The Aviation Law Committee provides an opportunity not only to contribute to the development of aviation law but also to make useful contacts with aviation attorneys (in private practice and in-house) from all over the world. This is particularly important in an international industry such as aviation, where attorneys are required to deal with aviation attorneys in other countries on a regular basis.
Our committee membership is drawn broadly from members from all round the globe including Australia, Hong Kong, India, Singapore, South Korea and the United States.
