An aircraft is flying from the USA to Germany. Overhead the UK, the pilot is told that he/she is no longer allowed to enter Germany. All mentioned countries signed the International Aviation Convention. This situation is…

  • A

    legal, because the US is not part of EASA.

  • B

    legal, because Germany has the right to withdrawn traffic.

  • C

    illegal, because they signed the convention and therefore are obliged to permit the aircraft to land.

  • D

    illegal, because a permission to enter cannot be withdrawn once given.

Chicago Convention
