Formerly unregulated, the GCAA vision was to increase safety, security and standardization for the growing aviation community.
The regulation will be published into a Notice of Proposed Amendment (NPA) that will remain open for 12 months allowing for comment. The NPA provides clear expectations for everyone to follow to ensure safety, security and standardization in UAE skies. The GCAA vision is to achieve safe, secure and sustainable General Aviation community within the UAE.
