GCAA DG Message

With the successful completion of 2014–16 Strategic Plan and of the implementation of changes brought on through the Organizational Transformation Program introduced in 2010, we are confident that the UAE General Civil Aviation Authority’s contribution to the aviation sector will meet all expectations and we will continue to enjoy our stakeholders’ trust for being an effective organisation producing better results for aviation safety, security and, ultimately, for the nation’s economy. This Strategic Plan 2017–21 sets out how we plan to achieve our vision to become one of the leading, safe and secure civil aviation systems.

This Plan is developed through rigorous internal and external consultation and analysis (PESTL, SWOT and Brainstorming Workshops) to determine how well we did to reach where we are today, what helped, where were the challenges and the business environment outlook for the future. The organization’s internal and external climate demanded a revision of the GCAA’s Mission, Vision, Values and Strategic Objectives to ensure that the organization remained on course to achieve its Vision.

The 2017–2021 Cycle will see the continuation of our previous strategy of enhancing compliance through creation of awareness, risk based audits, improvement of services through stakeholder engagement, global connectivity through continuous consultations, negotiations and enhancements in our infrastructure. We have committed ourselves to incorporate the Federal Govt.’s initiatives related to 7 Star Services and Reading. We will continue to maintain our focus on organizational sustainability and performance underpinned by a strong focus on people, services and processes enabled through development and empowered with innovation.

We recognise that our success is the result of hard work and commitment of our dedicated staff, which is well supported by the productive partnerships with the national and international aviation industry stakeholders.
