About the Book

This is the first book to explain how the government regulates the aviation industry.

Chapter 1 defines key terms and pro­vides an overall view of the industry. Chapter 2describes the evolution of reg­ulations and regulatory agencies. The third chapter explains how federal regu­lators exercise authority. Chapter 4 dis­cusses regulatory powers in state and lo­cal governments. Chapter 5 explains how a regulation is formulated. Chapter 6 examines four categories of aviation: reg­ulations related to airline business prac­tices, to safety, to the environment, and to miscellaneous factors. Chapter 7 dis­cusses ways in which major segments of the industry are actually regulated. And Chapter 8 forecasts future directions in aviation regulation.
