Aviation law provides rules for operating airplanes and other aircraft, and regulates airline flights. Airport construction, operation, and maintenance are also governed by aviation law. If you are a pilot, aviation law tells you the proper take-off and landing procedures, what to include in flight plans and where to file them, what altitudes to fly at, and whether instrument-only flight is possible.
