Practical Aviation & Aerospace Law and its companion workbook function as a comprehensive instruction package for undergraduate and graduate aviation law courses. This book, as a set or a stand-alone textbook, offers an invaluable reference guide for aviation and aerospace business managers, pilots, maintenance personnel, aircraft owners, air traffic controllers, air safety investigators, remote pilots, and others involved in aviation or aerospace as a profession or hobby.

Practical Aviation & Aerospace Law provides readers with the basic legal knowledge and perspective to understand how the legal system works in this industry. The authors guide you to recognize and avoid common legal pitfalls, and help you realize when you need to call a lawyer. This eighth edition reflects recent judicial decisions and changes in statutory, regulatory, and international treaty law. It covers topics surrounding the burgeoning unmanned aircraft system (UAS), advanced air mobility, and commercial spaceflight segments from an increasingly global viewpoint.

Authors J. Scott Hamilton and Sarah Nilsson write concisely, clearly and conversationally about the complex field of law, including frequent examples from personal experience in practice and education. Their combined effort offers a strong foundation for understanding how to apply the law to aviation and aerospace interests and operations.
