Ghana Civil Aviation Authority: History, Location, Contacts


The Ghana Civil Aviation was first established in 1930 during the colonial era as a unit within the Public Works Department (PWD) of the British colonial administration. The Unit, however, gained Departmental status in 1953 to become a full standing department of the PWD until 1986 when the PNDC Law 151 was passed to finally make it an Authority.


In 2004 a new act, known as the Ghana Civil Aviation Act (GCAA), Act 678 was enacted to replace the PNDC Law 151, giving more power and responsibility to the authority.

Some major functions of the GCAA under the 2004 GCAA Act 678 include:

-Licensing and Certification of Air Transport Operators


-Provision of air navigation spaces within the Accra flight information region

-Provision of oversight for all activities related to civil aviation

-Regulation of air transport operators

-Advising the government on all matters concerning aviation.
