This article examines (1) the nature of aviation user charges and the rate at which they have been expanding; (2) the present largely bilateral context of such charges; and (3) the attempt of the United States to deal unilaterally with some of the problems connected with such charges in the International Air Transportation Fair Competitive Practices Act and in individual bilateral negotiations. This examination demonstrates the difficulties of dealing with user charges in a unilateral or bilateral context and suggest that a multilateral convention may be the most effective way of doing so. Section IV sets forth the major aspects of a possible future multilateral agreement.
