The annual report provides a concise picture of the operations of the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA), and reviews our performance against the corporate goals identified in the CASA Corporate Plan 2009–10 to 2011–12, for the year ending on 30 June 2011.
The report also provides a detailed description of CASA’s operations during the year; financial statements for 2010–11; and a glimpse of our plans for meeting challenges in the year ahead.
