We are the UK's aviation regulator and recognised as a world leader in its field. Our activities are diverse, enabling the aviation industry to meet the highest safety standards, and we pride ourselves on our ability to adapt to the constantly evolving aviation environment. The Role
The CAA has a duty to ensure that the utilisation of the UK's airspace is monitored, that the industry is updated, and that safety is maintained. To this end, our Airspace Utilisation team holds the responsibility to effectively coordinate and notify relevant industry partners on Unusual Aerial Activity and Obstacle Notification through our online systems. Unusual activity and obstacles are defined as generally hazardous activities that could pose a risk to other air users and can cover anything from flying displays to cranes.
As an Airspace Utilisation Operations Assistant, it would be your role to review incoming applications and plot their impact on the surrounding airspace, or aero structures, within a certain radius. Once this is complete you will draft and qualify notifications, known as NOTAM, AIC or ACN, that will be published online so that flight planning professionals can be made aware of their impact.
This is a fast paced, technical orientated and highly varied role that is perfect for someone coming from a flight planning background. As a function it sits at the heart of the CAA's duty to the aviation industry and the public. Its function is vital to ensuring the safe and well-planned use of UK airspace and the subject matter is both interesting and challenging. About You
