The CAA has published its log of prosecutions for 2011/12, which includes details of the offences prosecuted, pleas and penalties imposed by the courts.

In total, the authority undertook sixteen prosecutions – resulting in a total of £20,050 in fines.

The largest single fine imposed on a single defendant was £4,500 for a series of offences where a pilot undertook public transport flights without the appropriate licences or Air Operator’s Certificate.

The most common offences were airspace infringements and flying without the correct licences or documentation.

Fifteen of the prosecutions led to fines, while one offence resulted in a community sentence that banned the defendant from being part of an aircraft crew for a year.
