In the UK, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) is responsible for regulating most of the aviation sector, including airlines, airports and national air traffic services. The CAA works independently from the Government. The CAA’s main activities include the issuing of licences for aircraft, flight crew and aircraft maintenance engineers, setting medical fitness standards for aviation personnel, such as pilots, who are critical to aviation safety; licensing of aerodromes and other aviation facilities, maintaining the UK register of civil aircraft and its online database, G-INFO, conducting air accident investigations, making sure that aircraft are airworthy, regulating aviation-related engineering functions, issuing air operator’s certificates, operating licences and route licences, managing the Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing (ATOL) financial protection scheme – all holiday companies selling air holiday packages and flights in the UK must by law hold a licence.
If your business operates within this sector in the UK, you’ll need to meet the economic, safety and consumer protection regulations enforced by the CAA. These can apply to a wide range of air-related businesses. It’s likely that your business, any aircraft you operate, and some or all of your staff will need to be licensed by the CAA and follow certain standards and regulations.
For airline operations, compliance at all levels and across all teams is vital. Whether operating within an airport, city, cargo or engineering division, the adherence to your airline standards, policies and procedures is the bedrock of your success. Ensuring that employees and crews are compliant with the very latest information at all times is an everyday task that can seem overwhelming.
