Flying has become common but for most human beings it remains an incredible achievement! In spite of the Covid-19 global crisis, the aviation sector has a bright future. This crisis is a real game-changer, legitimately questioning both players and models, but it is definitely not the end of the long-lasting adventure of aviation. Air traffic is gradually resuming and private entities as well as public institutions are committed to tackling aviation’s greatest challenge: flying with zero carbon emissions. Aside from environmental concerns, regional and international regulation authorities, airlines, airport operators, aircraft manufacturers, OEM, MRO and groundhandling firms have to face a growing number of complex challenges and to deal with more legal and regulatory issues such as safety, security, export control, embargoes, data protection, competition, unmanned systems… In this context, the demand for qualified legal expertise is increasing.
