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.

A new and updated series of the popular General Aviation (GA) Safety Sense Leaflets has been launched by the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) with the first, covering flying with passengers, now available online.

For many decades the GA community has used the CAA's Safety Sense Leaflets to help stay safe. They cover a range of subjects from winter flying to balloon airmanship. Now, taking a lead from the success of the Skyway Code guide, the CAA has started to update some of the key leaflets.

First of the new series is an update of the advice for flying with passengers. As COVID restrictions are further lifted it increases the chance for GA pilots to share their flying with a wider group of friends and relatives. The leaflet contains a wealth of advice to make these flights safe and comfortable.

All the Safety Sense Leaflets, including the new passenger guide, are available on our website.

Other updated leaflets are currently being developed for release over the coming months.

Sophie-Louise O'Sullivan, Head of General Aviation & Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) said:

“The GA community has always told us that they really value the Safety Sense Leaflets. Our project to update them will make sure they continue to help people fly safely for many years to come.”
