UK Civil Aviation Regulations

These are published by the CAA on our UK Regulations pages. EU Regulations and EASA Access Guides published by EASA no longer apply in the UK. Our website and publications are being reviewed to update all references. Any references to EU law and EASA Access guides should be disregarded and where applicable the equivalent UK versions referred to instead.

As part of the Advanced Air Mobility Challenge, the CAA is in the process of determining the required technical and operational requirements to:

• enable current licensed aerodromes to accommodate VTOL aircraft, and
• enable bespoke ‘vertiports’ to operate VTOL aircraft

The CAA have conducted a gap analysis between existing UK regulations for licensed aerodromes and heliports, and vertiport guidance published by other bodies such as EASA, the FAA, and ICAO Annex 14 Volume II.
