As the UK’s specialist aviation regulator, this five year strategic plan sets out how we propose to contribute to the development of the UK aviation sector over the five years from 2016–2021, what we want to achieve and how we plan to do it.
Aviation affects almost all of us in some way. For frequent business flyers and families flying abroad on their annual holiday, the link with aviation is obvious. It is the same for the many thousands of companies and employees whose livelihoods depend on the provision
of aviation services. For those who rarely or never step onto an aeroplane, the link is less tangible but just as real. From supplies of non-seasonal fresh food to tourism and high-value supplies for manufacturing, aviation is a key part of the way that we live, delivering benefits for the whole of the UK. Aviation
also has less positive effects. Many feel strongly affected by aviation noise and changes to the design of airspace, and want more done to reduce the sector’s environmental impacts.
In many ways our regulatory strategies look familiar but this familiarity should not mask the scale of the challenges we face. These include:
These are just some of the challenges we face. What is at stake is the real-world experience of the many stakeholders who we aim to serve.
