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.

CAA online forms

The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) is gradually introducing a new on-line forms solution, which will enable you to complete and submit applications electronically. As part of this change we will also be introducing the option to pay on-line for your applications.

Browser support

The forms will function correctly only if you are accessing it using a web-browser that is able to support JavaScript.

You will not be able to submit a form if your browser does not support JavaScript. Partial JavaScript support can also cause submission failure by blocking a critical form function, for instance, preventing a user from providing mandatory data. Please check your browser supports JavaScript before investing time in filling out this form.

Forms have been tested on a variety of different browsers. If you have any issues completing the form, please let us know.

Customers using unsupported versions of Internet Explorer (IE) run real risks of zero-day exploits when using the public internet. From July 2016, CAA online forms will no longer support Microsoft IE8, IE9 and IE10 browsers. This is in line with Microsoft’s decision to withdraw support for these browsers.

Use of cookies

The form solution uses cookies to allow the submission of your completed form. This is for the purpose of maintaining the connection between your computer and our servers. No personal information is stored in these cookies.

A cookie is used to maintain connection information between your computer and our servers as a part of completing the form. By accessing the form you are consenting to this cookie being used.

Data security and retention

In filling this form in, you will be providing personal data to the CAA, which will be handled in accordance with the CAA Data Protection Statement. Please be aware that technical staff working on behalf of the CAA may on an exceptional basis access user submitted data to provide support or to address technical issue associated with your form submission.

All supporting documents should be uploaded with a different filename clearly stating the content of the file attachment (for example Passport, Licence copy etc.) Submitting documents with the same filename may result in the loss of information in the system and added delays to the application assessment.
