The Civil Aviation Authority of the Cayman Islands (CAACI) was happy to present a donation to the National Council of Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) Children Services as the second recipient of its monthly staff donations specifically to aid local organizations assisting the community during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
CAACI’s Deputy Director-General, Mrs. Nicoela McCoy remarked, “The CAACI is delighted to donate this month’s charitable collections to the NCVO knowing that during the pandemic the cost of quarantine schooling and child care escalated for residents of NCVO Foster Home, in addition to the necessity to cancel school fees for the early childhood centres, which created a sudden and considerable loss to the NCVO. The N.C.V.O. Children Services is a local charity established in 1974 for the purpose of meeting community needs that the service organizations did not meet”.
Mrs. Nasaria Chollette, Care Manager for the N.C.V.O. Nadine Andreas Foster Home said, ‘We want to give a huge thank you to the CAACI for choosing the NCVO to be the recipient of this very generous donation. It is times like these when we get to see the true spirit of our community. We are immensely grateful to have your support so that we can continue to offer programmes and services to those in need’.

The CAACI has full designation for safety oversight as a UK OT, and is one of only three OTs to enjoy such delegation. The CAACI is responsible for both technical and economic regulation of the Cayman Islands’ aviation industry. In addition, the Cayman Islands is classified as Category 1 by the USA Federal Aviation Administration under their “International Aviation Safety Assessments” programme that evaluates a country’s civil aviation authority’s ability to effectively regulate its aviation industry. The requirement for such rating lies with the CAACI being assessed as having technically qualified and highly experienced staff to effectively oversee the aviation industry in accordance with established standards and recommended practices of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).
