The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has launched a consultation on its future policy for General Aviation (GA) regulation. It builds on the recent GA Red Tape Challenge and the formation of the CAA's first dedicated GA unit and will define how the CAA regulates GA on a day-to-day basis. The proposed policy seeks to put in place a new way to regulate GA that both recognises the need to protect third parties, such as the general public, but also makes requirements more proportionate and assists in the Government's aims of making the UK GA sector innovative and vibrant.
The CAA is keen to hear the views of anyone involved in or affected by GA. This survey lists the questions to which the CAA would welcome responses. The full consultation can be viewed at www.caa.co.uk/consultations where further details of how to respond are also provided. The closing date for responses is 31 July 2014.
