George Town, Grand Cayman, (March, 2015) – Continuing its annul support to local charities, the CAACI staff and it’s board members recently pooled financial resources to support the Feed our Future Cayman (FOFC) charity. Donations were presented to the FOFC Founder Stacey Vandevelde.
FOFC is a not-for-profit organization founded in 2011 by a group of local professionals who became concerned with the growing issue of childhood hunger in the Cayman Islands. The aim is to provide quality, nutritionally balanced meals to school aged children that are at risk. The belief being that nutritionally deficient children cannot learn and perform optimally in school. This year, some CAACI staff and board members pooled financial resources to support this worthy cause and presented the donation to the FOFC Founder Stacey Vandevelde.

Background info to augment:
The CAACI has full designation for safety oversight as a UK OT, and is one of only two 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 oversee the aviation industry in accordance with established standards and recommended practices of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).
