Safety and Risk Management

Safety Initiatives

The CAA has a fundamental role of setting safety standards and ensuring that these are met.

Any occurences with possible safety implications are closely scrutinsed so that we can be confident that the highest practicable levels of safety are achieved.  

All parts of the 'aviation system' are closely monitored, this includes:

  • the design, manufacture, operation and maintenance of aircraft,
  • the operational environment including airports and air traffic control systems and
  • the performance of the personnel involved.

Data is collected and analysed, and potential risks are identified. Where appropriate we will fund research or a specific safety initiative.

This section of the web site provides details of this important work.
