Civil Aviation Authority

The Civil Aviation Authority supplies information to assist aircraft focused searches and make recommendations following post search investigations.


The CAA establishes civil aviation safety and security standards, and monitors adherence to those standards. The CAA carries out accident and incident investigations and collates this material to establish an industry-wide safety picture. This becomes the basis of safety initiatives ranging from education campaigns to increased monitoring and regulatory action.
