THE LAW OF AIRSPACE

PROPERTY RIGHTS IN AIRSPACE ARE DISCUSSED. IT IS A SUBJECT THAT HAS INCREASING IMPORTANCE IN THE URBAN SETTING. BOTH PUBLIC AND PRIVATE REAL ESTATE DEVELOPERS HAVE TURNED TOWARD THE UTILIZATION OF AIRSPACE OVER RAILROAD TRACKS, HIGHWAYS AND FREEWAYS. THE RESULT HAS BEEN THE CONVEYANCE OF TITLE TO OR INTERESTS IN AIRSPACE. FROM THE STANDPOINT OF THE PUBLIC GENERALLY, THERE ARE THE PROBLEMS OF URBAN RENEWAL, REDEVELOPMENT AND SLUM CLEARANCE AND THE NECESSITY OF PROVIDING SUITABLE HOUSING FOR THOSE WHO ARE OFTEN OF POORER ECONOMIC CIRCUMSTANCES AND WHO CLUSTER NEAR THE HEART OF METROPOLITAN AREAS. PUBLIC HOUSING PROJECTS AND OTHER PUBLIC BUILDINGS WILL MORE AND MORE TREND TOWARD THE USE OF AIRSPACE IN HIGHLY POPULATED AREAS. ANOTHER FACET OF THE SAME SITUATION IS THE NECESSITY TO PROVIDE FOR THOSE WHO ARE DISPLACED AS THE RESULT OF THE CONSTRUCTION OF FREEWAYS AND EXPRESSWAYS THROUGH OUR LARGE CITIES. THIS IS A BOOK NOT ONLY ON THE LAW WHICH AFFECTS THE UTILIZATION OF AIRSPACE, BUT ALSO ON THE METHODS AND INSTRUMENTS EMPLOYED IN AIRSPACE TRANSACTIONS AS SUCH. A MAJOR PART OF THIS DISCUSSION INVOLVES AVIATION AND THE PROBLEM OF THE AIRPORT AND THE LANDOWNERS WHO SURROUND IT. THE DISCUSSION AND THE MATERIALS ON AIRSPACE TRANSACTIONS ARE FOUND IN THE LATTER PART OF THE BOOK. ACTUAL COMMERCIAL TRANSACTIONS AND THE INSTRUMENTS UTILIZED IN THEM ARE CONSIDERED AND REFERENCE IS MADE TO LEGAL INSTRUMENTS REPRESENTING DIFFERENT KINDS OF TRANSACTIONS WHICH HAVE BEEN REPRODUCED IN THE APPENDIX. /AUTHOR/
