The roles we play are numerous and established by Parliament. It is our job to act within these laws in a way which is relevant
to both today’s stakeholders and those of the future.
Those groups delivering aviation services are generally incentivised to deliver our stakeholders’ reasonable expectations. So why do
we need to exist?
We exist for a number of reasons but, in general, we step in where the sector is unable to deliver what stakeholders reasonably
expect without regulatory intervention.
Potential shortfalls against expectations are varied but can affect different stakeholders in a number of ways. For example:
There is also an expectation that the aviation sector is equipped to service the needs of future and current generations. We do this
by facilitating necessary investment for future generations by helping to deliver airspace and airport capacity where there is a clear
and compelling case, or adapting our regulatory style so it can facilitate the take-up of beneficial technologies.
It is to address these instances and others that Parliament has given us a number of duties and powers targeted at making the sector
work better for all.
