Welcome to the RAeS Air Law Group

The law touches many aspects of aviation, and the subjects addressed by the Air Law Group cover a wide range of activities in the aviation sector. The subjects raised include product liability, airline liability, insurance, airports, regulation of aviation, legal aspects of technical matters and European liberalisation.

The Group works often with other RAeS Groups. It organises, and contributes to, conferences, lectures and other functions related to its subject matter. It has recently established a mediation and arbitration scheme for use by the aviation community, the details of which can be found here.
