Norwegian Civil Aviation Authority (Norwegian: Luftfartstilsynet) is the Norwegian inspectorate responsible for civil aviation in Norway. It is subordinate the Norwegian Ministry of Transport and Communications. Its head office is located in Bodø and it has an office in Oslo.[1]

Formerly it was part of the Norwegian Civil Aviation Administration, Luftfartsverket, but this was split into an inspectorate and an airport and air traffic management operator, Avinor.

Lawsuits[edit]

A verdict at Oslo District Court, found that employees of the aviation authority had operated recklessly, and the authority was in 2011 sentenced to pay 2.3 million Norwegian kroner to plaintiff Roger Hansen of the Ocas lawsuit (Ocas-saken).[2][3])
