Aviation Law

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

South Africa has a well-developed body of aviation law that is continually updated in keeping with international standards and recommended practices. As such it provides a solid framework for a vibrant local aviation community.

Aviation law comprises fields of public and private international law, as well as, in the narrower sense, the national law of South Africa. It includes parliamentary and subordinate legislation on aviation matters, multilateral international conventions and recommendations of international bodies on aviation matters (some of which have the force of law in South Africa), as well as the common law as applied to situations particular to aviation.
