The CAACI has full designation for safety oversight as a UK OT, and is one of three OTs to enjoy such delegation. The CAACI is responsible for both financial and economic regulation of the Cayman aviation industry. In addition, the Cayman Islands is classified as Category 1 by the USA Federal Aviation Administration under their “International Aviation Safety Assessments” programme that evaluates a country’s civil aviation authority’s ability to effectively regulate its aviation industry. This rating enables commercial air transport operators registered in Cayman to conduct international air transport operations into the USA, i.e, Cayman Airways, Ltd. The requirement for such rating lies with the CAACI being assessed as having technically qualified and highly experienced staff to effectively regulate the aviation industry in accordance with established standards and recommended practices of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).
