The International Aviation Law Institute's journal, Issues in Aviation Law and Policy (IALP), has produced its first-ever special edition. The edition contains transcripts of the first three interviews from the Institute's acclaimed "Conversations with Aviation Leaders" oral history series. The series explores the origins, history and record of U.S. airline deregulation as told through the voices and memories of its participants. To date, there have been five interviews, all of which can be viewed at the Institute's website here. By transcribing these interviews, IALP has turned these valuable conversations into more easily searchable and citeable scholarly resources. Later interviews will be collected in a subsequent special edition next winter. The current edition contains interviews with:
- Michael E. Levine - Distinguished Research Scholar at the New York University School of Law, former Executive Vice President of Marketing and International at Northwest Airlines, and former CEO of New York Air, who was a leading staff member of the Civil Aeronautics Board both before and after the deregulation of the U.S. airline industry.
- Dr. Alfred E. Kahn - Late Robert Julius Thorne Professor of Political Economy, Emeritus, at Cornell University and former Chairman of the Civil Aeronautics Board, known as the "Father of Airline Deregulation."
- Robert L. Crandall - Former CEO of American Airlines, a strong early critic of airline deregulation, whose innovations include the computer reservation system and the first frequent-flyer program.
