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.

To us

You do not have to ask permission to link directly to pages hosted on the Civil Aviation Authority Web site. As the information on this site is frequently updated we recommend that links are only made to section home pages or our published shortcut web addresses.

By us

It is our policy to obtain permission to link to other Web sites. The Civil Aviation Authority is not responsible for the contents or reliability of the linked websites and does not necessarily endorse the views expressed within them. Listing should not be taken as endorsement of any kind. We cannot guarantee that these links will work all of the time and we have no control over the availability of the linked pages.

Use of the CAA logo

The CAA strictly controls the use of its logo.

The text and image are trade marks and it is illegal to use them without permission.

The logo may be used only by individuals or companies who:

  • hold an approval / permission / certification granted by the CAA,


  • act in the capacity as a supplier to the CAA with our express permission.

An individual or company will only be permitted to use the CAA logo where the logo is also endorsed with the CAA's unique reference number, granted for that particular approval, permission or certification together with an explanation of the type of approval, permission or certification held.

For drone (RPAS) individuals or companies: if you hold a current operational authorisation directly from the CAA then you may use the CAA logo on your website and marketing, providing you always quote your unique authorisation number alongside it. If you are authorised to fly only in the open category, for example an A2 operator, then you can use and show the certificate you received from your training organisation that includes the CAA logo but not use the logo elsewhere.

Any specific request for use of the CAA logo should be referred directly to our Communications Team.
