Civil aviation simply couldn't exist without the framework of international and national laws that govern the ways we work. So what are these international agreements, and how do they affect your work everyday? In this course, you'll find out.


The course is a blend of online learning and a one-day classroom course, bringing together everything you learn online and giving you the chance to put it into practice with the support of one of the UK CAA's legal experts.


In the online modules, you will learn about the aspects of international air law that govern civil aviation and keep us all safe. The modules will take you around 20 hours to complete and will give you the perfect grounding in international aviation law.


In the classroom, we'll look further at how these international laws affect different scenarios and situations, the key international conventions and how this affects the work you do every day. The day is practical and includes group work, case studies, scenarios and plenty of time for questions and discussion.

This course is appropriate for anyone working in civil aviation around the world; from NAAs, airlines, aerodromes, maintenance and design organisations.
