Australian Government releases latest corporate plan for CASA

    Australia Federal Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Darren Chester released (24-Jul-2017) the latest corporate plan for the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA). The plan continues CASA’s focus on safety as its highest priority and sets out the aviation safety regulator’s responsibilities. Mr Chester stated: “The 2017–18 CASA corporate plan is a strong blueprint for the future of aviation safety regulation in Australia to help maintain our record of having one of the safest skies in the world”. The overarching objective will be to create an efficient, simple and accessible experience for the people and organisations in aviation that conduct regulatory business with CASA. Other specific initiatives include a review of the safety regulatory strategy for remotely piloted aircraft systems, commencing implementation of the final tranche of regulatory reform, and continuing the implementation of the Government’s response to the Aviation Safety Regulatory Review. [more – original PR]
