Airservices Australia was created in July 1995 when the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) of Australia was split into an airspace management organisation, Airservices Australia, and an aviation safety authority, the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA). Airservices Australia has responsibility for Air Traffic Control, aeronautical information, communications, radio navigation aids, airport rescue and fire fighting services etc. It operates a small fleet of aircraft for Navaid Calibration, some of which were inherited from the CAA.
