Where the liability of the owner or operator of an aircraft is to be decided by the common law rules of negligence1, a failure on his part, or on the part of any person for whose negligence he is vicariously responsible, to comply with any of the statutory rules and regulations applicable in the circumstances of the case may be relevant as being evidence of negligence2. Thus, in the case of collisions particularly3, a breach of the Rules of the Air4 will afford evidence of negligence, if there is a sufficient causal connection between the breach and the collision.
