Dubai airspace and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) airspace, in general, are not governed by either the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) or the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) regulations. Dubai’s airspace is subject to the regulations and oversight of the UAE’s aviation authority, the General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA).
The GCAA is responsible for setting and enforcing aviation regulations, safety standards, and air traffic management within the UAE, including Dubai. While the GCAA may cooperate with international aviation authorities and organizations, such as the FAA or ICAO, for matters of international aviation safety, it has its own set of regulations and guidelines specific to the UAE’s airspace.
Dubai, specifically, has a very busy and complex airspace due to the presence of major international airports, including Dubai International Airport and Al Maktoum International Airport (Dubai World Central). The GCAA manages this airspace and ensures compliance with its regulations and safety standards.
So, Dubai airspace falls under the jurisdiction of the UAE’s GCAA, and it operates in accordance with the UAE’s specific regulations and procedures.
