CAA progress in general aviation

Significant progress was made in 2014 to make regulation of the UK’s General Aviation (GA) sector more proportionate and evidence-based the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) said earlier this month (January).

Chages support the CAA’s new top level principles for GA regulation as it:

• Only regulates directly when necessary and does so proportionately

• Deregulates where it can

• Delegates where appropriate

• Does not gold-plate, and quickly and efficiently removes gold-plating that already exists

• Helps create a vibrant and dynamic GA sector in the UK.
