Aviation Ethics – Growth, Gain, Greed, and Guilt

  • 1. Hamburg University of Applied Sciences


Purpose – Reach awareness that the aviation industry tends not to abide by the law and tends to apply unethical business practice. --- Approach – Information is reviewed via the Internet, this includes media information. --- Findings – Cases have been found showing a ruthless industry behavior accumulating guilt in the end. At times, obedience to the law is not even shown when the law is strongly enforced to the detriment of the company. --- Research limitations – Information was only collected from the Internet. No insider information is used. No attempt has been made to analyze cases in detail, but rather to elaborate an overarching pattern. --- Practical implications – Learning from past action of aviation organizations may result in a realistic view based on suspicion. --- Social implications – The discussion about the behavior of aviation organizations opens up the topic beyond aviation expert circles. --- Value – This seems to be the first philosophy based summary of the topic.
