The University of The South Pacific in conjunction with leading aviation expert Professor Ron Bartsch has developed a series of accredited Aviation Law courses specifically design for aviation professionals. The International Aviation Law module specifically addresses the universal system of rules and principles that help to regulate international aviation industry. This course satisfies the requirements of pilots, aircraft engineers, air traffic controllers, managers, airport operators and aviation law professionals in terms of their workplace duties and associated legal and regulatory responsibilities concerning commercial aviation.

About This Course

This module provides an introduction to the topic of international aviation law. The module will explain why international law is a universal system of rules and principles concerning the relations with sovereign states, and relations between states and international organisations such as the United Nations and the International Civil Aviation Organisation. The aviation industry is regarded as the most strictly regulated and most internationally harmonised of any industry sector. It is therefore vital for people working in the aviation sector to understand this international law framework. The module also discusses why international law is generally considered to be split up between private international law and public international law. The module concludes with a discussion on the importance of the Montreal Convention 1999 in respect to carriage by air with case study examples.
