The purpose of this book is twofold. First, it lays out the forces that shaped the international aviation industry and that changed all the rules in the drive for liberalization. Second, it looks at the many interesting and difficult choices ahead that the airline industry in general and the international aviation industry in particular face. These choices include many dichotomies: pulling back from the trend toward liberalization or embracing the liberalization trend, merging in search of profitability or fragmenting the industry in search of economies. These possible futures are explored including the pros and cons of each future from a national, consumer, employer, and employee perspective. As with the previous two editions, Evolution of International Aviation reviews the historical development of the international aviation system. From this foundation it then provides an updated and expanded account of the current state of the aviation and aerospace industry including profitability, consolidation, and merger activity. New to this edition, the book broadens the coverage of the industry segments - airlines, air cargo, and manufacturing - to include the emerging commercial space sector. It also emphasizes the relationship between aviation and the political process, exploring the sustainability of this mode of transportation in a world of climate change, high oil prices, and political instability. Because this book is intended for both the interested amateur and the more serious student, references are provided in the text and at the end of each chapter to allow for further in-depth study. The third edition also adds to each chapter a set of learning objectives and a concluding series of questions for discussion.

This title was first published in 2003.Airline operating profits are well known to be volatile, and the global industry aggregate figures conceal wide differences in performance between carriers. The fundamental reasons for the poor performance of the industry as a whole were in the early 1990's that output ran too far ahead of demand, and the yield earned on output sold was insufficient to cover costs. In strategic context, this second edition uses a simple yet powerful model to explore linkages between the fundamentals of airline economics and the volatility of industry results at the operating level. Its five parts look in turn at strategic context, supply side, demand side, network management and a general conclusion.

Foundations of Aviation Law is an easy-reading general primer into the often complex world of aviation law, written for aviation students as well as legal professionals who are looking for broad-based, introductory coverage of the subject. The text begins with basic legal concepts that build a foundation for in-depth exploration of aviation-specific subject matter. This allows the instructor to utilize one text in situations where a basic foundation in law is required before moving into aviation law specifics. It includes citations to relevant and key court decisions that provide a solid underpinning for the student of aviation law. The book is divided into six general categories, with fifteen relevant sub-chapters, allowing focused learning into particular areas of law. Throughout it features chapter summaries, key word indices and review questions. The design easily allows instructors to develop syllabi that spotlight the specific area of law that they are interested in exploring, providing comprehensive coverage of both traditional introductory legal concepts and topical aviation subject matter.
