Aviation law includes all facets of the law dealing with the ownership, operation, maintenance, and use of aircraft, airports and airspace. It also involves licensing and aeromedical issues encompassed by the Federal Aviation Act and the associated federal aviation regulations promulgated thereunder.
Aviation law governs the operation of aircraft and the maintenance of aviation facilities. Both federal and state governments have enacted statutes and created administrative agencies to regulate air traffic.
The main source for aviation law is federally based. States are prohibited from regulating rates, routes or services of any air carrier authorized under the Federal Aviation Act to provide interstate air transportation. States are not prohibited, however, from enacting consistent laws, or from altering existing remedies under state law.
