Why Undertake Aviation Law Training?

The aviation industry is generally regarded as the most extensively and strictly regulated of all industries therefore it is essential for those working in aviation to be aware of their legal and regulatory responsibilities. Southpac Aerospace in conjunction with the recognized leading international aviation legal consultancy firm have developed a series of courses specifically targeted at practitioners, regulators and government officials, students of aviation-related courses and aviation lawyers.

Law training in aviation addresses the day-to-day legal issues that aviation professionals and managers are confronted with in their workplace. Each of the courses provide practical information and guidance to ensure aviation personnel are able to effectively deal with legal and regulatory issues and to know when they should seek legal advice. Both the international and domestic aviation legal systems are examined and strategies provided to assist participants in reducing personal and corporate liability.
