The CAA is preparing to launch a new ‘Innovation in Aviation’ capability in April 2019, offering innovators the chance to discuss, explore, trial and test emerging concepts and technologies in aviation, where there are no current precedents or clear frameworks.
Following a successful bid for funds from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, we will be setting up a new team to facilitate innovation throughout the aviation and travel industries.
This will enable us to support three new areas of work:
The new innovation team will be a significant change to the way we interface with individuals and companies working in the sector and the team will work closely with the rest of the organisation to make sure work is coordinated. Please see below links to some videos from Emma Simpson, Head of Innovation as well as our current job opportunities and our blogs.
