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.
