With the gradual introduction of the new Joint Airworthiness Requirements Flight Crew Licensing (JAR–FCL) syllabuses, this book should prove a useful source of the basic aviation law information, dealing as it does with the present UK law and the variations being introduced with the new JAR related legislation. The book should be more than adequate for the present UK examinations and should form a useful starting point for understanding the new legislation. For those concerned with operating or flying aircraft and needing a quick answer to what the latest law is requiring, it should prove an invaluable reference book which can easily be accessed by using the extensive index.
The opportunity has been taken to simplify presentation of information, with more checklists to aid revision work. Tests are included which are cross referenced to the pages containing the relevant text.
