(airplanes cost millions); and the supply of fuel is also expensive and uncertain. Given these facts, its not surprising that the industry is also heavily regulated. This paper
explores some of the issues surrounding aviation management in Bolivia. Discussion Bolivia is a small Latin American country named after Simon Bolivar, who fought for the nations independence
(Bolivia). It has a troubled history, and has undergone "nearly 200 coups and counter-coups" since it won independence from Spain in 1825 (Bolivia). It is completely landlocked, sharing
boarders with Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay and Peru (Bolivia). The geographical location of the country makes flying the most practical means of transport: roads are inadequate and rail
is almost nonexistent (Katel, et al., 2001). Unfortunately the industry is poor shape, and is "experiencing the worst crisis in its history" (Katel, et al., 2001, p. 35). Of
the 40 carriers based in Latin America, 34 were facing bankruptcy; with the result that remote locations were likely to lose all their air service (Katel, et al., 2001).
The "nose-dive" in the industry has caused many problems, including those that compromise safety (Katel, et al., 2001). "As the airlines sputter along on negative cash flow, their regulators
are being held to account for reported shortfalls in carrier supervision. No fewer than 14 of the regions civil-aviation agencies have been downgraded by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration
for allegedly inadequate safety oversight" (Katel, et al., 2001, p. 35). This includes airlines of Bolivia. The downgrading means that airlines with those ratings are not allowed to
add new flights to the U.S. (Katel, et al., 2001). One of the potential casualties of the downgrading is Lloyd Aero Boliviano (Katel, et al., 2001). As regional carriers
