Aviation Policy and Regulations

Aviation is a heavily regulated industry and both a global (ICAO) and regional (EU) level.  This module will provide an introduction for students to the regulatory environment within which aviation operates, at the Irish, European and international levels.

This module aims to empower aviation managers with an ability to assess the strengths and weaknesses of aviation regulation and thereby enable better management of operational and commercial functions. The provisions of aviation regulations that are most relevant to the management function will be explored so as to facilitate practical application to real world cases.

As a module aimed at non-lawyers, the teaching approach will utilise plain English explanations of regulatory laws and make use of cases and practical examples as the main source of illustration.

This module aims to develop the student understanding of leadership principles and enhance the students’ capacity to think strategically and better understand the organisational and leadership issues.


Having completed this module students will be able to:

  • Demonstrate a systematic understanding of the specific legal and regulatory framework that governs aviation.
  • Evaluate the competitive and regulatory forces that shape the air transport industry.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the characteristics, requirements and legal responsibilities of aviation organisations.
  • Critique and apply appropriate principles of regulatory evaluation to factual aviation regulations and cases with operational and/or commercial impact.
  • Exhibit decision making skills in recognising scenarios where engagement with specific regulations is necessary.
