Sir Stephen Hillier to lead UK Civil Aviation Authority until 2028

LONDON: The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has announced that its Chair, Sir Stephen Hillier, has been re-appointed for another four years by the Secretary of State for Transport. Sir Stephen, who took up the role in August 2020, will continue to oversee the regulator’s core mission of ensuring the safety, security, and consumer interests of the UK’s aviation sector.

Sir Stephen has led the CAA through some of the most challenging times in its history, including the COVID-19 pandemic, the UK’s exit from the European Aviation Safety Agency, and the launch of the UK’s space regulation. He has also been instrumental in advancing the CAA’s role in supporting aviation sustainability and innovation, as well as promoting diversity and inclusion across the industry.

Transport Secretary Mark Harper praised Sir Stephen’s performance and said he was confident that he would guide the CAA through the transition to a new era of aerospace technologies and decarbonisation. Sir Stephen expressed his delight at the re-appointment and said he looked forward to continuing the CAA’s work of protecting passengers and enabling the development of aerospace.
