CAA launches new tech aids

Two significant improvements to the way the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) provides information to the public and stakeholders were made last week with the launch of a new website and industry alerting system.

The website provides a range of enhanced and easily-accessible information and is automatically optimised for mobile devices, with much of the existing content re-written and updated.  Other improvements include more information for pilots on licences; multiple ways to access information; blogs to encourage discussion on aviation, and news and social media tailored to the web information being viewed.

The website remains at  www.caa.co.uk  and previous short URLs have been maintained. Bookmarks will take users to the nearest page of interest. Further development will continue throughout 2016.

The CAA has also launched a new stakeholder alerting system called Skywise. This is the CAA’s first app and offers targeted alerts on news and information through the app, email or website.

Skywise will enable stakeholders to choose how they receive alerts and select the categories they want. The CAA’s existing information and safety notice system will be phased out by spring, with Skywise replacing it. Existing users should register with the new app to continue to receive information.   http://skywise.caa.co.uk
