AVIATION LAW FOR PILOTS

THE FACT THAT the tenth edition of what is now a standard work on aviation law is a full thirty pages longer than the ninth edition gives some indication of how much more complex the subject has become.

THE FACT THAT the tenth edition of what is now a standard work on aviation law is a full thirty pages longer than the ninth edition gives some indication of how much more complex the subject has become.

This latest edition of a text first published in 1971 is based on the new JAR syllabus that is now mandatory throughout Europe including the United Kingdom, which explains some of the extra pages of text. The text has also been completely re worked to present the facts in a simple check list format, which does succeed admirably in making the book much more user friendly. Aviation law is not the favourite subject of many pilots in my circle of acquaintances, but it is a subject that we all must have a good grasp of and this new publication goes a long way to providing an authoritative guide to the subject.

It contains four Test papers, totalling over 80 questions and answers, which should probe the efficiency with which a reader preparing for an examination has managed to absorb all the necessary law information. But quite apart from helping with exam preparation, Aviation Law for Pilots is an invaluable reference book for any pilot, private or commercial, to have on hand, and it has a comprehensive index that does help one locate the pages relevant to the subject that interests you, quickly and efficiently.
