In equal measure, the inspiration for the content of this book came from the author's academic work as Director of the Institute of Air and Space Law of McGill . Good informative book, I'm not a lawyer but I still need to know how to cover my a $$ as a commercial pilot. This book and the "fundamentals of aviation law" are.

Hardcover Verified download. This book and the "fundamentals of aviation law" are a must have if you are a pilot. Used it for my college class. A must read for anyone who is or is even considering becoming any kind of pilot. Five stars. Any airport manager! I've never written a review before, but I honestly hope someone reading this will give these books a try. I liked the world building and characters and the story and all that.

Estes definitely does a good job of writing strong female characters, without clubbing you over the head that he's writing strong female characters just for the sake of doing so.

I've only read Fatemarked so far, but I am hooked. There is something interesting about the way David Estes, the author, captures small, beautiful, truly genuine moments that brings the novels to life. I guess I should tell you all that I'm a high school English teacher. I'm a special education teacher, actually, and teach kids with emotional disabilities. I am always trying to impart to my students that it is the smallest details of a story, those that are most easily overlooked, that can be the most compelling.

There is honesty in the small details. Most fantasy novels spend all of their time fighting epic battles, and I get that people love that about fantasy novels. There are battle scenes and action scenes and all that in Fatemarked, but they are not belabored and overly long just for the sake of it. Don't get me wrong, the action in this book moves along quickly. The novel begins with the characters as disparate threads, and as you read you will begin to see the fabric being woven together, making the book much more interesting.

The characters of particularly compelling to me, and the magical elements are well thought out and interesting- think epic fantasy X Men, kind of, sort of. Some may have a problem with the world building, but I thought the worlds Estes created were believable, not overly contrived, and added to plot development and characterization quite well.

I have a site Unlimited account and no life, so I read a ton of these fantasy novels. Fatemarked was a welcome departure from much of what I have read, and I would absolutely recommend them.

From the first attempts at powered manned flight to regular space flight we have only just exceeded years of aviation and we have had scheduled commercial air services since In this day and age of information technology, computerised ticketing systems and computerised flight plans, how did they cope in those early days? It is probably no co-incidence that the first International Conference on Civil Aviation also took place in at Paris.

Since then, the field of our chosen profession has been subjected to far more international legislation and regulation, than any other. The overriding need, which is recognised by all, regardless of political inclination, is for higher and higher safety standards. The degree of international co-operation in this respect is outstanding and shows that where there is a genuine desire to achieve international agreement, it is forthcoming.

The Second World War had a major effect upon technical development of the aeroplane telescoping a quarter of a century of normal peacetime development into just six years. The strategic use of aeroplanes for the movement of men and materiel to and from theatres of war laid the foundation for the air transport industry we have today.

It was foreseen that a vast network of passenger and freight services would be set up but also many problems were foreseen to which solutions had to be found to benefit and support a world subsequently at peace. There was the question of commercial rights - what arrangements would be made for the airlines of one country to fly into and through the territories of another? There were other concerns with regard to the legal and economic conflicts that might come with peace-time flying across national borders such as how to maintain existing air navigation facilities, many of which were located in sparsely populated areas.

However, international commercial aviation was considered to be of such importance and a priority issue, that the government of the United States conducted exploratory discussions with other allied friendly nations during the early months of Subsequently, invitations were sent to 55 states to meet in Chicago in November For five weeks the delegates of the 52 nations who attended, considered the problems of international civil aviation.

The 52 states agreed on policy and arrangements so that civil aviation may be developed in a safe and orderly manner and that international air transport services might be established on the basis of equality of opportunity and economically sound operation. A permanent body was subsequently charged with the administration of the principles, the International Civil Aviation Organisation known throughout the world by the acronym ICAO pronounced eye-kay-oh.

It established the privileges and restrictions of all contracting states, to provide for the adoption of International Standards and Recommended Practices for: There is no world parliament or global legislative body so there is legally no such thing as international law.

However, at conventions of states meetings for the purpose of reaching consensus between states , arrangements are made to regulate activities affecting more than one state through common agreement.

The agreements themselves are not legally enforceable as there is no global police force, and all states are entitled to their sovereignty see definition.

What happens is that the national delegation to the convention places before the national parliament or legislative body a proposal to make the text of the agreement and any codicils, appendices, protocols etc This process is known as adoption and subsequently, ratification. In this manner what has been agreed inter-nationally, becomes locally enforceable law in the states concerned.

An offence committed against such law would be try-able and punishable under national penal legislation in any contracting state anywhere in the world.

The application of national law is only applicable to the territory over which that state has jurisdiction. In aviation, the extent of jurisdiction is limited by the lateral limits of territorial airspace, but unlimited vertically. An interesting situation regarding satellites and space craft!

Lateral territorial limits have been agreed internationally where such a limit is not coincident with a land boundary. The airspace of Switzerland is easily defined because the country is land-locked. For the UK however, the limit is defined by the limit of territorial waters, which was agreed at the Geneva Convention on the Territorial Sea and Contiguous Zones In these and other conventions, the established privileges and freedoms of mariners, including those of the flag state the State in which a vessel is registered and the flag of which the vessel is allowed to fly , were applied to aeroplanes.

The rights of non-coastal states to ply the seas under the flag of those countries, requires the co-operation of coastal states to allow free access to the sea. In aviation, similar freedoms are embodied in the Chicago Convention to allow contracting states to fly over the territory of other contracting states for the purpose of international civil aviation operations.

At the subsequent UN Convention on the Law of the Sea the original agreements were updated and reinforced. A matter to which the Chicago Conference attached great importance was the question of exchange of commercial rights in international civil aviation.

The states addressed the subject, resulting in contracting states agreeing, bilaterally, to grant each other certain rights regarding the commercial exploitation of civil aviation. The following definitions are required knowledge. For instance, how many flights would be allowed in any period, what aerodromes could be used, what time of day the flights would be allowed, and what reciprocal arrangements would be required.

A state is not obliged to grant permission for an operator to operate a schedule. It is an embodiment of the freedoms that a state cannot refuse, on political or economic grounds, to accept a non-scheduled flight. Cabotage is defined as the transport of goods or passengers between two points in the same country. In aviation, the term cabotage is used in association with internal domestic scheduled commercial air transport.

It allows a State the right to restrict internal domestic scheduled or non- scheduled air services to aircraft and operators registered in that state. In international aviation, cabotage is permitted and the US is the prime example.

No foreign carrier is permitted to operate internally in the US. In the EC, the treaty of Rome demands free access to territory of all EC states and cabotage in aviation within individual EC states is forbidden. Under international law the imposition of customs tariffs and the prohibition of the importation of proscribed items, is allowed. In order to allow contracting states to maintain national Customs and Excise regulations, international flights are required to make the first point of landing in a contracting state at a recognised international airport which provides customs, health and immigration facilities.

In the UK these are known as customs airports. Within the EU the removal of restrictions to free trade now allows flights from one EU state to another to make the first point of landing at a non-customs aerodrome providing certain rules are observed. These rules are explored in the section of this manual concerning Facilitation. Other rules apply to immigration.

From the standards, the international rules and regulations governing civil aviation are drawn. By accepting contracted status, each state accepts the responsibility for enforcement of the rules and regulations within its sovereign territory and airspace through national law.

Thus a situation is recognised where national legislation and regulations have precedent over international rules within the territorial airspace of that State. Where flights are conducted over the high seas, the international rules apply without exception. The International ICAO Rules of the Air are promulgated Annex 2 to standardise the procedures for civil aviation specifically for the safety of aircrew and passengers.

Other regulations are established to facilitate the smooth and expeditious flow of air traffic by the adoption of Standards and Recommended Practices SARPS. The international agreements oblige states to prosecute. For instance: The aeroplane explodes over Scotland. Who has the power to prosecute?

010 - Air Law eBook Edition 2019

The order is as follows: If the UK had not prosecuted, the US most certainly would have. In accepting contracted State status, each state specifically undertakes to provide procedures and facilities for Search and Rescue SAR within the territory of that state. The standards governing the provision of SAR services oblige the state to provide at least the minimum service compatible with the type and frequency of the air traffic using the airspace for which the state is responsible, and that service is to be available 24 hours per day.

The requirement also imposes upon the state the need to maintain a degree of co-operation with adjacent states and the readiness to assist with SAR operations if requested.

The stated aim of the Convention on International Civil Aviation and subsequently the aims of ICAO are to ensure safety, regularity and efficiency of international civil aviation operations.

There are 18 annexes to the Convention, 17 of which are applicable to air navigation.


The SARPs are established after consultation with the contracting states and interested international organisations, finalised by the ICAO Air Navigation Commission and submitted to the Council where a two-thirds majority is required for adoption. The SARPs are considered binding on contracting states but if a state finds it impossible to implement the SARPs; it must inform ICAO under the terms of Article 38, of any differences that will exist on the applicability date of the amendment.

Such differences will be detailed in the national aeronautical information publication AIP and summarised in a supplement to each Annex of the Chicago Convention. ICAO has addressed taxation in the field of international aviation and member states are required to follow the resolutions and recommendation of the Council in this respect.

States are asked to exempt fuel, lubricants, and other technical consumables taken on an aircraft in a state other than the State of registry, providing such supplies are for consumption in flight. Also to reduce or eliminate taxes on international air transport fares and to grant, reciprocally to air transport enterprises of other States, exemption from taxation on income and profits. Within the area of customs duty and excise charges, Annex 9 Facilitation requires States to apply procedures, which allow expeditious handling of goods and cargo intended for import or which are passing through.

Annex 7 Aircraft Nationality and Registration Markings requires contracting states to apply standard procedures for registration. It includes the format of registration marks and nationality symbols, including the size and where these are to be displayed on aircraft. The annex also calls for the registration of all aircraft and provides a sample of a certificate of registration for use by States.

Annex 8 Airworthiness of Aircraft requires States to provide a Certificate of Airworthiness, for each registered aircraft, declaring that the aircraft is fit to fly. Under the terms of Annex 1 Personnel Licensing , SARPs are established requiring each state to apply standardisation in the licensing of personnel involved in international aviation including flight crew members pilots, flight engineers , air traffic controllers and maintenance technicians.

The overriding purpose of such standardisation is to ensure that all involved in air transport operations are licensed to common standards and able to operate throughout the world, thus generating greater trust in aviation on the part of the traveller. A licence issued by the authority in one state is not automatically valid in another State.

In this instance, the Annex requires states to establish procedures for the validation of licences issued in other states and defines the method by which such validation shall be annotated. More than half the cargo carried by all modes of transport in the world is classified as dangerous.

Because of the speed advantages of air transport, a great deal of this cargo is carried by aircraft. Other duties of member states include the provisions for the carriage of photographic equipment in aircraft and specification of what documentation is required to be carried.

Documentation includes: An annex is made up of the following component parts, not all of which are necessarily found in every Annex.

They have the status indicated: SARPs defined thus. In the event of impossibility of compliance, notification to the Council is compulsory under article 38 of the Convention.

Theheadquarters of ICAO is in Montreal and it provides the machinery to achieve standardisation and agreement between Contracting States of all technical, economic and legal aspects of international civil aviation. The aims and objectives of ICAO are to develop the principles and techniques of international civil air navigation and to foster the planning and development of international air transport so as to: The sovereign body of ICAO is the Assembly, which meets at least once every three years and is convened by the Council.

Each Contracting State is entitled to one vote and decisions of the Assembly are by majority vote of the Contracting States. They are: This is the body that proposes, formulates and finalises the SARPs and presents them for adoption by the Council. It is headed by a Secretary- General, appointed by the Council, and is divided into five main divisions: ICAO maintains seven regional offices: Each regional office is accredited to a group of Contracting States making up nine recognised geographic regions and the main function of regional offices is maintaining, encouraging, assisting, expediting and following-up the implementation of air navigation plans.

The nine geographic regions are: In dealing with international civil aviation, there are many subjects that ICAO considers on a regional basis as well as on a worldwide scale. In order to facilitate: The plan, which emerges from a regional meeting, is so designed that, when the states concerned implement it, it will lead to an integrated, efficient system for the entire region and contribute to the global system. In addition to the duties detailed above, the regional offices are responsible for keeping the regional plans up to date.

Through the regional offices, financial assistance is provide to assist states in specific circumstances. The provision of air traffic control, navigation aids and meteorological services in Greenland and Iceland are examples of this specific aid, where due to the intense air traffic using the airspace of those states such expenditure is disproportionate to the gross national product of those states.

There are now 18 annexes to the convention which are constantly under review to ensure that the content realistically meets the requirements of civil aviation now. You are required to be able to identify the annex and content. The 18 annexes are: Annex 1. Florin Coman-Kund. Ravi Nath. Ronald Schnitker. Asian Development Bank. Jerry A. Jan Walulik. Jeremy M.
