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.

Statistics relating to UK-registered aircraft

Every year, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) publishes statistics derived from the UK aircraft register. Aircraft are broken down by Certification category, aircraft class, weight group and by what kind of Certificate of Airworthiness (CofA) they hold. References to EASA category and aircraft class and the associated lists below are for historical purposes prior to the UK exit from the EU and EASA system.
