Consultation - Review of Aerodrome Facilities Team

Review of Aerodrome Facilities providing Rescue and Firefighting Services categorised as Special, 1 and 2

The CAA has recently completed a series of regulatory and strategic reviews of general aviation in the UK, including a review by the Light Aviation Airports Study Group (LAASG) of the regulatory provision at certain licensed aerodromes. Details of the LAASG can be found at www.caa.co.uk/laasg.

The LAASG review resulted in three recommendations being made to the CAA. To address one these recommendations, namely to conduct a review of the licensing criteria for RFFS Category Special, 1 and 2 aerodromes, a Review of Aerodrome Facilities Team (RAFT) was established.  The RAFT has now concluded its work and is making a number of proposals regarding the regulation of those aerodromes where RFFS Category Special, 1 and 2 is provided. The purpose of this consultation is to invite your comments on the proposals of the RAFT.
