Former Cable and Wireless PR chief Adrian Moorey this week joined

the Civil Aviation Authority as its new corporate communications

director.



The authority regulates aviation safety and, through its subsidiary

National Air Traffic Services (NATS), is responsible for providing air

traffic services in the UK.



One of the greatest issues Moorey is likely to face is the PR

surrounding the Government’s planned privatisation of NATS.



He will also have to tackle the controversial delay in the opening of a

new state-of-the-art traffic control centre at Swanwick, which has added

to fears over the safety of the current traffic control system.



Moorey will report to the Civil Aviation Authority’s chairman, Sir

Malcolm Field, and oversee its 11-strong communications team.



He was previously corporate communications director at Cable and

Wireless for more than four years.



Before joining Cable and Wireless, Moorey worked in the Government

Information and Communication Service, most recently as information

director at the Home Office from 1990 to 1994.
