This book contains the English translation and the official German text of the German Civil Aviation Act. For a better understanding of the Act, an introduction has been added, setting out the national, European and international context. An outline of the Act is given and an account of other German Acts and Regulations covering the field of aviation law. Furthermore, some practical issues related to aviation law are included as well.

The aim of this book is to assist in presenting and clarifying the applicable aviation law in Germany by providing a professional English translation of the German Civil Aviation Act. The need for such a translation emerged from the practical demand on the part of German lawyers, ministries and other organizations for an English text that could be used as a basis for legal communication with foreign colleagues and organizations that conduct or wish to conduct aviation business in Germany. The book is a welcome addition to the literature in the field and should be of interest to anyone dealing with German aviation law.

This book is volume 5 in our Essential Air and Space Law series, a book series set up with the aim of establishing a collection of prominent studies in this particular field of law especially for experienced practitioners (e.g. lawyers, policy makers in governments, national and international organisations and private entities), in addition to scholars involved in the research and study of air traffic and space law.
