Earlier today, former U.S. Department of Transportation Undersecretary of Transportation for Policy Jeffrey N. Shane was the International Aviation Law Institute's guest for the latest recorded interview in our "Conversations With Aviation Leaders" Oral History Program. Shane, who has also served as DOT Assistant Secretary for Policy and International Affairs and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Transportation Affairs, spent time as the chief U.S. aviation negotiator and was integral in the formulation of the United States' Open Skies policy. Institute Director Brian F. Havel served as interlocutor for the interview. This is the sixth interview in the program, the first five of which are available for viewing here. It is expected that a transcript of Shane's interview will be included in next winter's special edition of the Institute's journal, Issues in Aviation Law and Policy. Transcripts of the first three interviews, Michael Levine, Alfred Kahn and Robert Crandall, can be found in this year's special edition which can be ordered through the Institute website here.
