International Civil Aviation Day

In 1996 the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed that 7 December was to be the International Civil Aviation Day.

The day had been celebrated by the International Civil Aviation Organization since 7 December 1994, the 50th anniversary of the signing the Convention on International Civil Aviation.
