To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the liability of airshow organisers for harm that occurs as a result of members of the public deliberately putting themselves at risk.

The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) regulates civil flying displays and publishes requirements and guidance on the organisation, administration and participation of flying displays. Protecting the public is of paramount importance and as such any participant or organiser of a flying display is responsible for carrying out their tasks with the utmost professionalism and to the highest standards.

The assessment of liability for any potential harm that may arise for members of the public who deliberately put themselves at risk at civil flying display events is the sole responsibility of the organisers themselves.
