UK – EU Transition, and UK Civil Aviation Regulations

Please note, if you use information and guidance under the Headings below, the references to EU regulations or EU websites in our guidance will not be an accurate information or description of your obligations under UK law. These pages are undergoing reviews and updates.

Improving our understanding of how Human Factors (HF) impacts on the safety of Flying Displays is a priority for the CAA. Increasing awareness of HF amongst the air display community has led to key pieces of work that have recently or will shortly be delivered. Key amongst these is our ambition to make discussion of HF a routine part of our engagements which is why HF briefings have been given at all pre-season symposia, post-season symposia, DAE seminars and FDD accreditation courses since 2017. This will continue to be the case to ensure that we as a community are sharing our experiences, insights and best practice.

As part of this awareness raising and, in line with the direction set out in the CAA HF strategy, the CAA General Aviation Unit has developed this area to act as a repository for HF material that will be of interest to the Flying Display community.

In addition to this, we have commissioned two specific studies to look at, and better understand Flying Display HF; the first of which was conducted by NATS Human Factors in Flying Displays. The second study was conducted by the Health and Safety Laboratory HF in Air Displays: Transfer of Behaviours and Error Path Study.

Additional material will be added in due course. Any suggestions for additional material would be welcomed and should be directed to ga@caa.co.uk.
