The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) is an independent statutory authority established by the Commonwealth Parliament on 6 July 1995.

CASA's challenge is to enhance and promote aviation safety through effective safety regulation and by encouraging industry to deliver high standards of safety. Our vision is 'safe skies for all'.
More than eight decades ago, a small aircraft company started in Wichita, Kan., to do what others said could not be done – to build a monoplane that used a wing without supporting struts or braces.

Representatives from the CAA sit on EASA's advisory bodies, taking part in the Europe-wide regulation process.
