What work does the CAA do?
A Franchisee enters into an agreement with the Air Travel Trust to provide certain services.  On the basis of this agreement, the CAA can waive some of its normal requirements, such as a bond for example. 
Will I need a trust account? How often will I be audited?
Current franchisees provide alternative financial protection so the CAA does not require the franchisees' members to provide bonds.  The CAA and the ATT would have to consider the level of protection and assurance provided by each potential franchisee before considering the size of ATOLs the CAA could grant to franchise members.A Franchisee can expect to be audited every three years.
