Aviation means the transport of people and goods through the airspace. Aviation also includes non-airborne activities such as the operation of airports and any type of aircraft, as well as the navigation of pilots on the runway. Whether security check or monitoring of air traffic: security is always the focus of attention, especially at German airports and also internationally.
