Aviation and Aerospace Law

The legal realm of aviation and aerospace is defined by the body of Aviation Law. The scope of aviation law governs the operation and use of aircraft as well as the maintenance and management of aviation facilities. Governments around the world have passed laws and statutes, and established agencies to oversee the administrative functions and regulations of air traffic and related aerospace activities.

The international nature of air travel and the consensus that space, the moon and other planets should not be subject to claims of ownership result in aviation law being mainly a matter of international law.

Space law relates to matters of law beyond the Earth’s atmosphere.  This is a newer area of law and is closely tied to aviation and aerospace law.
