CAAi was recognised for its outstanding contribution to aviation security training. Notably, CAAi’s training programmes to support ICAO’s Year of Security Culture in 2021 and CAAi’s work to educate and upskill aviation regulators and regulated entities on aviation security regulation, oversight, and compliance.

Kevin Sawyer, Senior Manager of Aviation Security at CAAi, accepted the award in front of over 600 international aviation professionals and distinguished guests, including the UK Aviation Minister, Robert Courts MP.

Hosted by Emirates Group Security, the awards recognise and honour outstanding individual and organisational achievements and contributions to aviation security.

Speaking after the ceremony, Kevin Sawyer said: “We are thrilled that Emirates Group Security has recognised our efforts to enhance aviation security training, and we are delighted to have received this prestigious award. It is a credit to all the hard work from our colleagues in the UK CAA’s Aviation Security Directorate and our training team to deliver first-class aviation security training that is helping to improve aviation security standards across the globe. I also want to thank Emirates Group Security for hosting an outstanding symposium and facilitating some excellent, thought-provoking discussions that will undoubtedly positively influence the future of aviation security.

“Looking forward, we remain fully committed supporting ICAO and working with the wider global aviation community to deliver the ICAO Global Aviation Security Plan priorities – increasing international cooperation and support to improve the effectiveness of global aviation security.”

The Emirates AVSEC 2021 Global Symposium marked the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks and ICAO’s Year of Security Culture. The three-day symposium featured conversations on the themes to connect minds and secure the industry’s future. Leading speakers from international organisations such as ICAO, Interpol, and the UK Department for Transport delivered keynote sessions on important issues concerning aviation security. One of this year’s keynote speakers came from the Secretary-General of ICAO, Juan Carlos Salazar.
