The fact that the Nigerian aviation sector has a global impact is beyond debate. This is due to the aviation industry being a product of foreign technology in Nigeria. International standards must, by necessity, have an impact on the industry’s regulation. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) is in charge of overseeing global aviation regulation.  The 1944 Chicago Convention birthed the agency known as (ICAO). In order to determine if the Nigerian aviation industry’s regulatory bodies operate effectively and in accordance with international norms, this paper will examine the legal frameworks creating the institutions.  The laws establishing the Institution obliges the signatories to the Convention to comply with the international standards and recommended practices that were imposed by the International Civil Aviation Organization in order to fulfill the goals and objectives of the Chicago Convention, 1945. The extent to which Nigeria has ensured this concern within the ambit of National laws will be interrogated to see if they take Nigeria’s situation into account. The end outcome might be that the national Agencies are no longer able to cooperate to meet the primary goals of the International Civil Aviation Organization, which is to ensure the effectiveness of International Civil Aviation.
