This consultation document sets out proposals for revisions to the existing UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) Charges Schemes, due to take effect from 1 April 2024.

We believe these proposals represent a balanced approach to delivering our regulatory obligations today and enabling the sector to grow in the future, improving our efficiency in line with the commitments made in the Arm’s Length Body review of the CAA and taking account of the interests of those who pay our charges.

We welcome feedback on these proposals, in particular from those we regulate, in relation to the proposed charging structure and the level of charges.  Please could all responses be submitted through this site to ensure we are able to respond to your feedback as efficiently as possible. 

The consultation is open for an eight-week period and closes at midnight on the 15 January 2024. Following the consultation period, we will publish a response document reflecting the consultation feedback received from industry and the Secretary of State for Transport.
