The pace of innovation in
aviation is relentless. Technology advances, large private and public
investments, the rise of entrepreneurship, the explosion of new entrants in the
aviation sector, and the adoption of agile innovation methodologies are all driving
factors. But, the industry has strongly signalled its feeling that the
regulator is not advancing at the same pace as it does, with new rulesets and
standards that underpin regulatory approvals taking too long to emerge.
That is why in April 2019, the CAA
launched its Innovation Hub.
We are creating
a regulatory environment where innovation in aviation can flourish in line with
CAA principles, setting the CAA and the industry on a common journey, by:
Our team combines years of experience, from advising start-ups
and billion-pound global companies, through leading research projects on
Artificial Intelligence for aerospace applications, to developing regulatory
policies for future commercial operations. We have specialised expertise in
most current areas of innovation, including Autonomous Systems, Artificial
intelligence, Future Air Mobility and Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS).
vision is to make the UK a world leader for innovation in aviation
If you are an innovator working on the aviation solutions
of tomorrow, we want you to get in touch with us at Innovation@caa.co.uk
Please note that the CAA does not provide funding for
innovation related projects.
