Intellectual Property rights and the law surrounding the same is one of the most crucial within the whole framework. Protection of such rights is a crucial task that the state must undertake to ensure that individual creativity is encouraged and preserved. This paper will mainly be focused on the use of such Patent Law in India as well as around the world within the aviation industry, one which has seen and continues to see huge amounts of development throughout the course of time. With the increasing complexity of aviation technologies, the industry and its ecosystem, innovation in them have become more sophisticated over time. Patent owners began licensing out their inventions to generate new cash streams in order to survive in this competitive climate. Instead of acting as independent inventors with a single patent seeking commercial exploitation, aviation majors now act as integrators. Now one product is a combination of multiple patents. From a single patent to this vast network of patents, the aviation business is only becoming more complex, and the current technology only promises to advance in leaps and bounds in the future. Such an important sector of the industry, really needs to be studied with respect to patent law. The researcher aims to find some development and innovations in the aviation industry which are of significant importance to the legal framework on patent law, the issues which exist with the legal framework on patents and ascertain whether the legal framework on patent law with respect to aviation industry is satisfactory.
