The Evolution of Aviation in Times of War and Peace: Blood, Tears, and Salvation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The fascination with aviation has brought both pleasure and efficiency to travel and more destructive possibilities to war. It is appropriate to reflect upon the short history of aviation as 2014 marks the 70th anniversary of the Convention on International Civil Aviation in Chicago, born out of the ashes of WWI, which began 100 years ago. The Preamble to the Convention states that it is a means to "preserve friendship and understanding among the nations and peoples of the world," also acknowledging that "its abuse can become a threat to the general security." The paper argues that the international air law framework has not kept pace with the evolution of the industry and questions the reactive actions of governments and international bodies when responding to present day challenges based upon the fragmented and dated system. It is argued that apathy exists, which creates vulnerability and risk while stifling competition during times of peace.
