Specialized legal literature dealing with different aspects of international air law is rare, the developments often overtake the existing writings and there is a continuous need not only for updating but also for future-oriented thinking. There is a practical need for a compact but exhaustive and easily comprehensible textbook or reference book that deals with the most general aspects of international air law, as well as with the constitutional issues and law-making functions of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

This book fills this gap as it is a general treatise of the law of international civil aviation aimed at the needs of university students and educators, government authorities, airlines, practising lawyers, journalists, international organizations and the general public.

This book is motivated by the authors 25 years of experience (1966-1991) as international civil servant in the Secretariat of ICAO in Montreal - his last 8 years as Director of the Legal Bureau responsible for the legal work program of the organization. In equal measure the inspiration for the content of this book came from the authors academic work as Director of the Institute of Air and Space Law of McGill University (1989-1998) and his role as Professor of Law at that Institute until 2006 teaching this subject to graduate students from different parts of the world and different legal cultures.
