What is Aviation Law in the United States and Globally?
Aviation law is an extremely-specified field of law that entails most aspects of air travel, including, but not limited to, the operation and regulation of business issues relating to air travel, most things concerning FAA regulations, and the particular laws regarding flying.
Aviation law also relates to nearly all persons or entities associated with the operation and maintenance of aircraft. For international rules and regulations, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) regulates air travel by the use of universal rules and/or mediating international aviation law differences.
What Does Aviation Law Entail?
The exercise of Aviation law might include legal actions for persons who have suffered loss or injury due to an aircraft accident and the representation of an airline employee charged with violating Federal Aviation Regulations. There are other areas that delve into space flight, flying cars, and drones.
What are the Aspects of Aviation Law According to American Law?
The Federal Aviation Administration oversees all aspects of aviation in America. Since air traffic regulation policies, laws and administrative agencies have been created by both federal and state governments the laws are extremely complex and you need expert attorneys with complete knowledge to help guide you through the process in any action related to aviation law.
For example, the Federal Aviation Act mandate constraints preventing states from regulating routes, services, or the rates of air carriers approved to provide interstate air transportation. However, states may offer existing remedies and ratify state laws consistent with the Act. Moreover, federal law does not override state products liability law.
Therefore, in most product failure cases, aviation companies may be held strictly liable.
Does Aviation Law Concern Drones and Flying Cars?
Absolutely. Many enterprises and individuals are using drones and or creating flying cars for the next generation and so many new laws are being created to deal with the issue. For example, NASA and the FAA have drawn up a framework for where, how fast and how high each of these new inventions can travel. Boeing is backing the Silicon Valley company Kitty Hawk which has developed a taxi-like flying car namedCora, and the Flyer, which is meant to land on water. Test flights of these VTOLs (Vertical Take-Off and Landing vehicles) have been successfully completed.
So, with this in mind, imagine all the new laws that will come into play once they come on the market? It is imagined that the registration and licensing requirements alone will be extremely complex. Not to mention the liability issues.
