CAA Non-Executive Director stands down

Former British Airways executive Garry Copeland has had to stand down as a Non-Executive Director of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) over what is said to be a potential conflict of interest. He had been on the Board for seven months.

Copeland, a former Engineering Director at BA, had been appointed to help the authority deliver its strategic safety objectives.

The CAA said: “Garry was appointed to the Civil Aviation Authority Board in September 2021. He brought a wide array of skills and experience, having worked in numerous positions across the aviation and aerospace sector.

“However, it is with regret that we have not been able to resolve a potential conflict of interest to our mutual satisfaction.

“We offer him our very best wishes for the future”.
