Aviation is central to the economy of every State. Each government contributes to this economic well-being when it fosters a safe, competitive and sustainable aviation industry. The primary role of an aviation ministry or department is to advise their government on the policy and regulatory framework for the State’s airports and aviation industry and to recommend choices for decision-making. This responsibility covers a wide range of aviation and airport issues such as airspace management, security, infrastructure, investment, commercialization, facilitation, air route development, compliance and the environment.
The ministry manages the relationship between the government, the State aviation regulator (National Aviation Authority or Civil Aviation Authority), the air navigation service provider, airlines and the national aviation industry. In many cases, the ministry also oversees the participation of the State in the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and provides a Secretariat for the International Air Services Commission (IASC).
Key concepts are presented as to how to manage economic regulation and develop successful aviation policies. The course provides an opportunity to develop skills, strategies and techniques to influence aviation policy.
