A database filled with reports of ufo sightings from airline crews is going to be kept away from public eyes.
Airline staff report a number of ufo sightings every year to the Civil Aviation Authority.


Since the MoD closed its UFO desk in 2009, the CAA has become the last British government organisation to retain an interest in UFOs and keep
files on incidents involving civilian aircrews. But it has decided not to release a dossier detailing sightings or incidents between 2011 and 2017.
Government files of this kind are normally available under the Freedom of Information Act, which allows any member of the public to request files from
the government. But the CAA is now using a piece of European legislation from 2014 to block access to its record of “occurences”. It states:
“Occurrence information can only be used for the purpose of maintaining or improving aviation safety, and the release of occurrence information to
the general public or the media, including in response to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, is not permitted. “However, if you require
occurrence information for the purpose of maintaining or improving aviation safety you are able to make an application to the CAA.”

One of the purposes of the legislation is to protect the identity of the pilots.
A Dr. David Clarke of Sheffield Hallam University’s department of journalism was shocked when his FOI request was denied.

He told The Sun Online: “These have been collected and logged by the CAA since at least 1976.

“For many years the CAA has released this information under Freedom of Information without any evidence that commercial secrets or safety have been
harmed or compromised. “Indeed in 2012 the chief executive of Britain’s National Air Traffic Control Services, Richard Deakin, admitted in a BBC Radio
4 interview that his agency received reports of UFOs from civil aircrew somewhere in the world every month.

“But then they seem surprised that curious individuals might want to see details of these incidents using Open Government legislation. “Now they are
using a piece of European Regulation to block public access to these records.

The only conceivable reason for this change of policy is embarrassment on the part of the aviation industry. It does not want to admit that its pilots
do occasionally report things in the sky that are difficult to explain. “To improve public confidence in air safety, the authorities should be
proactively promoting open access to records of this type.”

When asked the CAA told the Sun Online the files WERE available, if you could prove you were going to use the information to further improve safety in
the sky. The information is not available to the public or journalists.
A spokesman comments:

The Mandatory Occurrence Reporting (MOR) scheme requires individuals and organisations within the aviation industry to report safety occurrences to
the CAA, with the intention that these reports are used to constantly improve safety levels. “Information held by the CAA under the MOR system may
be made available, for the purpose of improving aviation safety, subject to completing this application form.”

Sad really. I have always enjoyed reading or hearing about Airline Crew/Pilot sightings.

I think they are arguably, some of your best sighting witnesses.
