Considering aviation’s complexity, scope and regulation, very few precedent setting cases have seen the inside of our courts. There are many variables that influence this, but the largest factor is down to the fine profit margins that so many operators find themselves trading in.
But surely avoiding litigation is something one should strive for?
Perhaps, but this is not always applicable; litigation provides a platform that is crucial to the healthy functioning of any economic sector. For example, litigation provides for a class suit against regulatory bodies in regulated industries such as aviation, ensuring just administrative action.
There is a reason why the balanced scales are one of the symbols of justice
Any relationship, be it economic, regulatory, contractual etcetera requires a balance in order for justice to be achieved. Imagine a contract that only creates responsibilities for you yet no duties on the other party, would you sign such a contract? Why then do we continue to operate in this manner in aviation? Dispute resolution could balance the scales between legislation and operation, in turn assisting in growth of the sector as opposed to one-sided regulation.
