Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) is a public sector autonomous body working under the Federal Government of Pakistan through Aviation Division Cabinet Secretariat. CAA was established on 7th December 1982 through Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority ordinance 1982. Prior to the creation of CAA, a Civil Aviation Department (CAD) in the Ministry of Defence (MoD) used to manage the Civil Aviation related activities. Ministry of Defence (MoD) continued to be the controlling Ministry even after the creation of CAA on 7th December 1982. However, in June 2013, Government of Pakistan assigned this responsibility to Cabinet Secretariat (Aviation Division).
The purpose of establishing CAA is to provide for the promotion and regulations of Civil Aviation activities and to develop an infrastructure for safe, efficient, adequate, economical and properly coordinated Civil Air Transport Service in Pakistan.
Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority would continue to ensure distinct separation of regulatory functions from the service provider functions, strengthen all the three core functions and achieve, comply and exceed the requirements/standards set by ICAO and International Management System Standards through continued focus on the change process to enable achievement of the transformation as envisaged.
