Aviation is one of the most important types of transport and is one of the fastest growing sectors. Most civil flights are predominantly international in nature, which is an important factor in civil aviation legislation. Main aim of work is to analyse the legislation in civil aviation in the field of international aviation law. The work deals with the definition of the airspace as the space above the state land territory, internal and coastal waters, which is part of the state territory. Each state has complete and absolute sovereignty over the airspace above the territory of the state. The division of airspace, which is analysed in the article, is important for air traffic controllers and for providers of air navigation services. The legal norms that regulate the regime of flights over the defined territories of states are known as freedoms of the air. The authors acquaint the reader with the basic terms and definitions from the theory of law for a proper understanding of the international civil aviation law. We also analysed the most important legal aspects in the international civil aviation which are contained in bilateral conventions. At the end is a list of the most important conventions related to aviation law and protection against acts of unlawful interference. The article concludes with the Slovak Aviation Act as the most important national civil aviation law in the Slovak republic country.
