Independent online survey on the CAA launched

The UK Government has been clear that as the UK exits the EU, its aim is to ensure continued transport connectivity in support of economic and social ties.

It is also clear that the responsibility for aircraft and technology certification and maintenance will fall solely onto the shoulders of the CAA.

In response, an independent online survey has been launched by new pressure group Sky Lovers, with the express aim of obtaining views from everyone in aviation, ‘from drone operators to senior airline captains’.

This survey will provide ‘stakeholders’ with an opportunity to influence some of the legislation and governance surrounding the operation of the CAA. ‘Now is the time for everyone to have their say,’ urges Sky Lovers.

The last review of the Civil Aviation Act 1982 by Sir Joseph Pilling was challenged by the House of Commons Transport Select Committee in 2012.

The evidence given by several MPs questioned accountability, transparency and the efficiency at the CAA. ‘It also raised a crucial point,’ claims Sky Lovers ‘that the organisation is not subject to any audits by the National Audit Office, in contrast to similar organisations’.

Those interested in taking part in the survey are invited to visit the web page: https://surveyhero.com/c/caacomplaints

Jonathan Newman I began this survey but sadly abandoned it because it is too directive (recruiting supporters for a pre-judged position rather than gauging opinion) and will not have the needed affect as the results will lack credibility.

Ian Statham I agree with the above and also gave up. Also, there needs to be a 'don't know' or 'not applicable' option with some questions.

Mark Marchant As above I also abandoned the survey for the same reasons

Brian Mackie To discover how a real independent survey of a Civil Aviation Authority should be run, why not take a look at ours: https://www.caa.gen.nz/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/GAA-2018-Survey.pdf
