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.

The UK Civil Aviation Authority's General Aviation Unit (GAU) is dedicated to effective regulation that supports and encourages the UK's dynamic GA sector. In preparation for the end of the EU transition period, the CAA has launched "UK General Aviation opportunities after leaving EASA - a consultation". This consultation is an opportunity for you to help achieve our ambition of making the UK the best place for general aviation and we would therefore like to understand:

  • how we can help the GA community (and its associated businesses and industries) to flourish after leaving EASA, and to identify its specific priorities;
  • how we can engage with and work more efficiently, constructively and collaboratively with the GA communities in delivering our objectives;
  • the priorities of those who are not part of the GA community when considering the future of General Aviation in the UK.*

Your views will help to develop the direction of future regulation and shape how we work more effectively together with the UK GA community. They will also help guide the CAA's work, helping determine our priority projects for the 2021 GA Change Programme.

The CAA is inviting all members of the UK GA sector to contribute to this consultation and share their views. The consultation will close on 18 December 2020.

For further media information please contact the CAA press office on 0333 103 6000 (09:00 - 17:00 Monday to Friday), out of hours: 07789 745 636 and via email to press.office@caa.co.uk

*In this consultation we are not seeking views on:

  • technical or operational concepts about how aircraft may fly
  • aspects of airspace design (this is being reviewed separately)
  • areas outside of our responsibility e.g. VAT on fuel, VAT on training.
