Regional Aviation Association of Australia (RAAA) CEO Steve Campbell has left the association to take up a managerial role with CASA.
Campbell becomes the second association CEO to return to the regulator in recent months after RAAus CEO Matt Bouttell also accepted an Executive Manager position.
Campbell will take on National Operations and Standards with Bouttell appointed to head the Regulatory Oversight team.
Campbell spent three years as RAAA CEO and during that time was instrumental in developing policy regarding importing engineers and the Federal Government's aviation green paper. He also negotiated with AMDA Foundation to support a series of RAAA roadshows around the country.
Previously, Campbell served as aviation advisor to former Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Michael McCormack and had careers in GA, regional airlines and with Cathay Pacific, peaking as check-and-training captain on B777s.
Campbell is expected to take up his new role at CASA in February.
