The CAA ask that respondents tell them where in the UK they live to help them analyse responses and identify areas with low response rates.

Consultation description

This call for evidence aims to assess the effectiveness and efficiency of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). It is part of evidence-gathering for the Department for Transport’s review of the CAA.

The CAA is the United Kingdom’s independent specialist aviation and airspace, safety, security, consumer rights, spaceflight, and economic regulator. The CAA ensures:

  • the aviation industry meets the highest safety standards
  • consumers have a choice, value for money, and are protected and treated fairly when they fly
  • the efficient use of airspace to manage the environmental impact of aviation on local communities and the reduction of CO2 emissions
  • compliance with regulations so that the aviation industry effectively manages security risks
