The UAV Challenge organisers are excited to announce that Australia’s Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) are Silver sponsors for the 2016 UAV Challenge. CASA provides a world class safety regulatory environment for civil air operations in Australia and the operation of Australian aircraft overseas. CASA’s challenge is to enhance and promote aviation safety through effective safety regulation and by encouraging industry to deliver high standards of safety. As part of this function CASA provides comprehensive safety education and training programs, cooperates with other government agencies and the industry, and administers certain features of Part IVA of the Civil Aviation (Carriers’ Liability) Act 1959. CASA has been a supporter of the UAV Challenge for many years now and it is wonderful to have their continued support.
