At CAA International, we have an important vision; “a world where every State has a sustainable aviation system, protecting those who fly and those who do not”. However, we cannot do it alone.
We are committed to developing strategic partnerships with aviation institutions, agencies, funding organisations and fellow ICAO Member States, adopting a collaborative approach to tackle major aviation challenges and achieve consistent standards of aviation regulation across the globe. Our partners and collaborators include:
International Civil Aviation Organisation
CAAi is fully committed to supporting ICAO’s strategic objectives, complementing the UK CAA’s wider cooperation with ICAO.
We assist ICAO in ensuring No Country is Left Behind by supporting fellow Member States with the effective implementation of ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs), ensuring that SARP implementation is harmonised around the world so that all States develop a safe, secure, sustainable and reliable air transport system. Aligned with this, we are founding members and actively prioritise our contribution to ICAO’s Aviation Safety Implementation Assistance Partnership (ASIAP), helping to coordinate and standardize efforts amongst all contributors to beneficiary States.
In 2017, ICAO signed a training cooperation agreement with the UK CAA to support its No Country Left Behind initiative. Under the agreement, CAAi (as a Social Enterprise) provides places on its training courses free-of-charge, to aviation personnel from eligible designated Member States, to help enhance the regulatory capability in developing countries. Other training initiatives have included CAAi sponsored experts to deliver Aerodrome Certification training to 14 African countries, along with similar for the SE Asia region to be delivered autumn 2018.
Routinely, CAAi provide experts to ICAO seminars and workshops around the world in support of key initiatives including Risk Based Surveillance and State Safety Programmes.
The Next Generation of Aviation Professional (NGAP), an ICAO led initiative promoting the development of skilled aviation professional for the future, is something very close to our heart. Through the activities of CAAi as a Social Enterprise, we encourage (across the schooling system in the UK) young people to consider carers in aviation and sponsor efforts to promote STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths).

European Aviation Safety Agency
Similarly, to our support to ICAO, CAAi has a strong history of cooperation with EASA and particularly in ensuring collaborative support to the raising of aviation standards around the globe and supporting States in developing mature, safe, secure and sustainable aviation systems.
CAAi delivers projects on behalf of EASA’s International Cooperation Department around the globe, promoting EU/EASA aviation standards and regulation to improve aviation oversight.
In partnership with other European National Aviation Authorities (NAA) under contract by EASA, in 2017 CAAi delivered over 30 training deliveries in South East Asia and conducted NAA “health-checks” to support EASA’s efforts in raising regulatory oversight capacity and competency in the region.
As part of a Partnership agreement, the UK CAA & CAAi contribute to the execution of the Agency’s tasks, amongst others, by providing certification, oversight and related tasks. CAAi delivers more than 600 projects on behalf of EASA including airworthiness assessments, investigations, audits and certifications across 36 countries.
CAAi is an approved EASA Virtual Academy Training organisation and one of the founding members. We deliver EASA-approved regulatory training courses for NAA inspector personal.
The UK CAA, through CAAi, play a key role in supporting EASA in the management of the European Central Question Bank, Flight Crew. This is a common database of questions for professional pilots licensing and it is used by all EASA Member States. Our considerable contribution reflects the range of expertise we are able to deploy and the importance of supporting EASA with this initiative and the direct impact on safety standards.
