Military Aviation Authority (MAA) – Enhance the delivery of operational capability through continual improvement in military Air Safety, appropriate culture, regulation and practice.

Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) – The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), which is a public corporation, was established by Parliament in 1972 as an independent specialist aviation regulator and provider of air traffic services. The UK Government requires that the CAA’s costs are met entirely from its charges on those whom it regulates. Unlike many other countries, there is no direct Government funding of the CAA’s work.

European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) – The Agency promotes the highest common standards of safety and environmental protection in civil aviation in Europe and worldwide. It is the centrepiece of a new regulatory system which provides for a single European market in the aviation industry.
