Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands (21 December 2020) – On Wednesday 15th December, the Civil Aviation Authority of the Cayman Islands (CAACI) presented a donation to Acts of Random Kindness (ARK).

CAACI’s Deputy Director‐General, Mrs. Nicoela McCoy remarked, “The CAACI is delighted to continue its support to those who have been impacted by the pandemic throughout our community and in particular at this time of year as we are in the Christmas Season. We are so thankful for organisations such as ARK which are committed to helping those in need. We hope that our donation will aid in the provision of goods and supplies to help lift the spirits of the recipients.”

The CAACI has full designation for safety oversight as a UK OT, and is one of only three OTs to enjoy such delegation. The CAACI is responsible for both technical and economic regulation of the Cayman Islands’ 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. 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).
