The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) is making flexible use of internal resources and additional fixed-term contractor staff, to help manage the short-term increase in applications. This has increased the available resource by 35%, and the CAA consequently expect to have returned to its target turnaround time of ten working days by the end of June. The CAA is also actively recruiting additional permanent staff to improve resilience over the medium to long term.
