Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) is a state corporation of Kenya that is responsible for regulating the aviation industry in Kenya and for providing air navigation services in the Kenya flight region.

The KCAA offers training in the aviation professions through its affiliated East African School of Aviation.[3]
