The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA or CAAI, Hebrew: רשות התעופה האזרחית‎) is a statutory authority of the Ministry of Transport and Road Safety of Israel which regulates aviation. The former Civil Aviation Administration was converted into the present authority on May 13, 2005.[1] It was established by the Civil Aviation Authority Law - 2005.[citation needed] Its head office is at Ben Gurion Airport.[2]

The Chief Investigator main office investigates aircraft accidents and serious incidents and publishes reports on those accidents and incidents.[2]

Due to the large number of accidents caused by communication problems, the CAA has ordered all Israeli pilots to take a test in basic English language comprehension, but the Israel Air Pilots Association has rejected this.[3]
