• Following the tragic accident at the Shoreham Air Show on Saturday 22 August 2015 that resulted in the loss of life of eleven members of the public the UK’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) reviewed the arrangements for public flying displays in the UK.

    This review is now complete and available at UK civil air display review: final report

    The Military Aviation Authority (MAA) supported this Review and will ensure that any lessons for military air displays are read across into military regulations, which were also reviewed and updated in parallel with the earlier CAA work.

    The review was supported by UK Department for Transport Ministers.

    The review sponsor was Mark Swan, the CAA’s Group Director for Safety and Airspace Regulation (SARG). An independent, external panel of experts chaired by Geoffrey Podger CB, oversaw the review and offered critical challenge.
