A WORD FROM OUR FOUNDER

"The history of aviation is punctuated by innovation and paradigms that shift slowly, then suddenly. As arbitration and specialised arbitration more specifically become woven into the fabric of the globalised economy, it is time for the framework of dispute resolution in our industry – an industry that is indeed one of the great globalizers - to evolve. The Hague CAA is the innovation we seek, and the shift begins now. "
