Over much of the past two decades international relations has been dominated by the term and concept of globalization. One key reason is the explosive growth in the speed and variety of contacts with even very remote parts of the world. If there is one industry that seems to embody the concept, it is the international aviation system. But if people or cargo can travel, say, from New York to New Zealand in less than a day, the aviation industry that allows that to happen is still one of the most heavily regulated industries on both the domestic and international levels.
