CAA Launches 2011 GA Safety award

The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) is once again calling for nominations for its annual General Aviation Safety Award.

The Award seeks to honour individuals and teams who, through skill and determination, have made a lasting contribution to GA flight safety. Whether it is a one-off incident, or a lifetime of campaigning work, the CAA is keen to give credit where it is due. 

Although many previous winners have been honoured for displaying good airmanship in potentially serious flying incidents, the CAA encourages nominations for individuals or organisations whose contribution to flight safety might be more enduring, such as maintenance engineers, aerodrome managers and air traffic controllers.

Nominees should be over 16 years of age and can be organisations as well as individuals.

Posters have been distributed to flying schools and clubs across the country calling for nominations, see attachment.

Nominations should be made online at or by emailing  Please include full contact details and reasons for nomination.
