Long description:

International aviation is a massive and complex industry that is crucial to our global economy and way of life. Designed for the next generation of aviation professionals, Fundamentals of International Aviation, second edition, flips the traditional approach to aviation education. Instead of focusing on one career in one country, it introduces readers to the air transport sector on a global scale with a broad view of all the interconnected professional groups.


This text provides a foundation of ?how aviation works? in preparation for any career in the field (including regulators, maintenance engineers, pilots, flight attendants, airline and airport managers, dispatchers, and air traffic controllers, among many others). Each chapter introduces a different cross-section of the industry, from air law to operations, security to environmental impacts. A variety of learning tools are built into each chapter, including 24 case studies that describe an aviation accident related to each topic. This second edition adds new learning features, geographic representation from Africa, a new chapter on economics, full-color illustrations, and updated and enhanced online resources.


This accessible and engaging textbook provides a foundation of industry awareness that will support a range of aviation careers. It also offers current air transport professionals an enriched understanding of the practices and challenges that make up the rich fabric of international aviation.



Praise for the first edition:


'Air traffic management (ATM) is a fast-paced and rapidly developing industry that provides global connectivity.?ATM plays a vital role in the safe and efficient flow of global air traffic, and offers a variety of long-term job opportunities worldwide, with some of the most innovative organisations and state-of-the-art technologies. As the global voice of air traffic management, CANSO is working in partnership with ICAO, other regulatory bodies, industry partners and governments to highlight and exploit the opportunities available and to train a highly skilled and dynamic workforce of the future. We welcome those who have taken the step to help deliver safe, efficient and effective airspace, and look forward to an exciting journey ahead.' ? Jeff Poole, Director General, Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation (CANSO).


'Great CG balance between Technical and Referencing simplification without losing its fundamental essence. A valuable book for the future of aviation in a Global context.

Frank Hofmann, Chair (retired), Aerospace Technology Department, John Abbott College, Montreal. IAOPA Representative to ICAO.
