The International Aviation Law Institute's journal, Issues in Aviation Law and Policy (IALP), has produced its second special edition containing transcripts from the Institute's acclaimed "Conversations with Aviation Leaders" oral history project. The project 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 six 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 citable scholarly resources. Later interviews will be collected in subsequent special editions. The current edition contains interviews with:
- John R. Byerly, the U.S. Department of State’s longest-serving Deputy Assistant Secretary for Transportation Affairs, and the lead U.S. negotiator for dozens of U.S. air services agreements, including the historic U.S.-EU open skies agreement;
- The Honorable Gerald L. Baliles, former Attorney General and Governor of Virginia and chair of the 1993 National Commission to Ensure a Strong Competitive Airline Industry; Gov. Baliles is also the co-founder of Issues in Aviation Law and Policy; and
- Jeffrey N. Shane, who served in a number of key policymaking positions in the federal government over a 30-year period, including Under Secretary of Transportation for Policy from 2003 to 2008.
