Welcome from the Director - General

Welcome to the Trinidad and Tobago Civil Aviation Authority (the Authority).

The Authority was established as a body corporate by Act no. 11 of 2001, with its functions being, inter alia, the maintenance of a standard of safety, security and efficiency that meets or exceeds the standard prescribed by the Chicago Convention, or any other aviation convention to which Trinidad and Tobago is a party, the regulation of civil aviation operations, and the overall development and promotion of civil aviation.

The majority of the Authority’s safety and security oversight functions are discharged by our Safety Regulation Division. The Authority is itself, however, also a service provider. For over 60 years Trinidad and Tobago has provided Air Traffic Control services in over three-quarter million square miles of airspace comprising the Piarco Control Area and the Piarco Flight Information Region. These functions are accomplished through our Air Navigation Services Division. Also, our Civil Aviation Training Centre, has for over 50 years been the primary provider of Air Traffic Services and Aviation related training within the English speaking Caribbean, with well over a thousand aviation professionals graduating during that time. While these comprise what may be considered the “aviation technical” arms of the Authority, all the Authority’s operations and activities are coordinated through our Corporate Services Division, which provides expert, financial, human resource, and general administrative advice, support and services.

The Authority is headquartered at the Civil Aviation Complex in Piarco, and also has an Air Traffic Control unit based at ANR Robinson International Tobago. Our 300 plus family, work diligently, professionally and with the highest levels of competence in their respective areas of specialty, to ensure that the Authority fulfils its mandates, including meeting the State’s obligations to international bodies like the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).

The Authority’s vision is to be a global leader in the sustainable development of civil aviation, and we intend to achieve that by continuing to provide quality services to the aviation industry. We invite all stakeholders to support us as we work toward the realisation of the vision, continue our role as a vanguard within the regional and international aviation community, and make our great country proud.

Thank you.
