General Aviation Red Tape Challenge

Date: 06 November 2013

Following the General Aviation Red Tape Challenge, which found that the current regulatory regime is often too prescriptive, impractical and inappropriate, the Government and Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) have announced plans to transform the way in which the UK’s General Aviation (GA) sector is regulated.

One of the key changes will be the setting up of a new GA Unit within the CAA dedicated to more proportionate, effective regulation that supports and encourages a dynamic GA sector for the UK. The unit will be in place by April 2014.
