The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) launched a new General Aviation Unit on 1 April 2014.

The unit is the latest demonstration of our determination to being a better regulator, reducing and improving our regulation of this key part of aviation in the UK.

The unit will be dedicated to effective regulation that supports and encourages a dynamic GA sector. It will make a key contribution to fulfilling the Government’s aspiration for the general aviation sector to enjoy a safety regulation system that imposes the minimum necessary burden and empowers individuals to make responsible decisions to secure acceptable safety outcomes, to make the UK the best country in the world for general aviation.
