The Australian Government has appointed Ms Philippa Stone to the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) Board.

Acting Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development Warren Truss said the appointment of Ms Philippa Stone would bring a wealth of relevant knowledge and experience to the Board.

“Ms Stone brings strong aviation governance experience as a former member of the International Air Services Commission and non-executive director of Airservices Australia.

“She also adds extensive legal expertise to the CASA Board as an experienced legal partner with Herbert Smith Freehills.

“This appointment continues the Australian Government's response to the Aviation Safety Regulation Review Report, which supported Board members possessing a range of appropriate skills and backgrounds to strengthen CASA's vital role as the independent aviation safety regulator.”

Ms Stone's three-year term will commence from 1 October 2015.
