International Observance: International Civil Aviation Day

In 1996, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed Dec. 7 as the International Civil Aviation Day.

The day has been celebrated by the International Civil Aviation Organisation since Dec.7,1994, the 50th anniversary of the signing the Convention on International Civil Aviation.

The purpose of the day is to recognise the importance of aviation, especially international air travel, to the social and economic development of the world.
