The Law of Unmanned Aircraft Systems: An Introduction to the Current and Future Regulation under National, Regional and International Law is a collection of expert essays that provides a comprehensive overview of the areas of air law relevant to Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS).

The acceleration in the development and use of UAS across the world has rapidly spawned a patchwork of regulatory initiatives in the field. It is with the purpose of synthesizing and clarifying this diverse body of international, regional, and national law – and of indicating trends and areas of concern – that this extraordinary collection has been compiled. The authors, working in many different parts of the world, are all in some way affiliated with the International Institute of Air and Space Law at Leiden University as alumni, faculty members or students.

The book is divided into sections, and further into chapters, enabling the reader to explore each topic in greater depth.

The first section of the book examines specific issues in air law facing regulators within the area of UAS. The second section explores different elements of European attempts at regulating UAS.

Following detailed investigations of international and regional developments, the third section of the book covers a cross-section of national laws (Antarctica, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, Cyprus, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, The Netherlands, Portugal, Republic of Korea, Romania, Russian Federation, Slovenia, South Africa, Suriname, Switzerland and Liechtenstein, Turkey, United Kingdom, and United States).

The authors’ approach throughout the book is introductory, allowing those unfamiliar with this field to gain valuable insight into this fascinating and dynamic area, whilst also being critical and focused, so that those more involved in the legal dimension of aviation law can also further their knowledge.
