Course overview

What is an International Air Law?

International Air Law covers the rules that apply to both domestic and international aviation. These rules govern the complex relationship between States, Service Providers and Passengers. The rules also govern the impact of aviation on the environment and on individuals affected by aircraft operations.  It is a very broad subject of relevance to most involved in civil aviation.

Course Overview

Civil aviation simply couldn’t exist without the framework of international and national air laws that govern the ways we work. So what are these international agreements, and how do they affect your work every day? In this International Air Law course, you’ll find out.

The course is a blend of online learning and a one-day classroom or virtual course, bringing together everything you learn online and giving you the chance to put it into practice with the support of one of the UK CAA’s legal experts.

In the distance learning online modules, you will learn about the aspects of international air law that govern civil aviation and keep us all safe. The modules will take you around 20 hours to complete and will give you the perfect grounding in international aviation law.

In the classroom or virtual session, we’ll look further at how these international laws affect different scenarios and situations, the key international conventions and how this affects the work you do every day. The day is practical and includes group work, case studies, scenarios and plenty of time for questions and discussion.
