Main Content

The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), which is a public corporation, was established by Parliament in 1972 as an independent specialist aviation regulator and provider of air traffic services.

The CAA is the UK's independent specialist aviation regulator.  Its activities include economic regulation, airspace policy, safety regulation and consumer protection.

The UK Government requires that the CAA’s costs are met entirely from its charges on those whom it regulates. Unlike many other countries, there is no direct Government funding of the CAA’s work.
