Civil Aviation Day
Why an “International Civil Aviation Day”?
Each year, the 7th of December is designated as International Civil Aviation Day. Though the day itself has only been celebrated as such since 1994 (the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Chicago convention), ICAO celebrates its 75th anniversary this year – hence the chosen motto.
Why an “International Civil Aviation Day”? It was set for the purpose of recognizing and drawing awareness to the role of international aviation on the world’s social and economic development. ICAO joins 192 of the 193 UN states together in cooperation to establish safe, secure, and efficient air travel.
