International Civil Aviation Day
For what and why is this day celebrated?.
According to the ICAO website, “The purpose of International Civil Aviation Day is to help generate and reinforce worldwide awareness of the importance of international civil aviation to the social and economic development of States, and of the unique role of ICAO in helping States to cooperate and realize a truly global rapid transit network at the service of all mankind“.
It commemorates the conference that was held in the United States in 1944, and from which the regulatory body of everything concerning aviation was born, ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization)
