School or Department : School of Business
Student contribution band : Band 4
Grading basis : Graded
Version produced : 17 May 2022


The aviation industry is a highly dynamic, global and complex socio-technical system. Within the industry there are multiple layers, from international regulatory agencies, right down to individual teams on the line, which all have differing levels of governance and influence on airline operations. The difference between regulatory agencies and advisory agencies is significant, in terms of compliance and the scope of their control span. Understanding the influence of these bodies on the aviation system is an inherent part of the aviation managers’ ability to integrate procedures, policies and regulations across their operations.

Students will be introduced to the framework supporting international aviation systems. They will develop a broad understanding of international aviation in general, including economic and social benefits of aviation, international organisations, national aviation agencies, foreign operations, deregulation, air service agreements, commercial arrangements, contemporary industry trends, security and environmental issues. They will learn the skills of effective managers by developing an appreciation of the impact of international aviation systems on aviation business.
