UK CAA International (CAAi) – Partnership on Pandemic Operational Recovery

CAA Operational recovery during a Pandemic



The course provides CAA senior and middle managers with an overview of the necessary safety and security oversight and surveillance activities during the recovery phase of a pandemic. It is also particularly beneficial for organisations that have applied for alleviations and exemptions, or significantly reduced their operating scope in terms of size, management infrastructure or complexity, during a pandemic or similar crisis.


The course aims to demonstrate how a CAA can review how its industry has planned and prepared to restart operations. This will include the assessments of the Service Provider’s regulatory compliance and safety and security management during Pandemic contractions and the recovery period. Participants can translate this acquired knowledge for immediate use in their professional environments.




By the end of this course participants will, via presentation, interactive discussion and a final mastery test of knowledge, skills and attitude be able to demonstrate an understanding of the following:


  • Key oversight and surveillance challenges facing industry and the CAA
  • How CAA surveillance will need to be adapted.
  • Safety risk based surveillance during the pandemic
  • Resumption of normal oversight and surveillance
  • The management of change process within the organisations’ Safety Management System (SMS)
