This will be an internal body, not public facing.  The CAA is recruiting members for the panel, which will help the CAA to take proper account of the “environmental interests and impacts in its regulatory policy and framework.” As the government decided in September 2021 to close the ICCAN (Independent Commission on Civil Aviation Noise) the CAA will have more duties relating to aircraft noise and the impact it has on people overflown.  In the vain attempt to reduce the negative environmental impact of air travel, the CAA hopes to “balance” the need to reduce carbon emissions (ie. fuel burn) with the amount of aircraft noise. The panel will follow the model of the CAA’s existing Consumer Panel.  .Tweet   UK Civil Aviation Authority set to create new Environmental Sustainability Panel 11th January 2022 The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) is creating a new Environmental Sustainability Panel.
