Ok I want to change my licence and medical etc from a IAA to CAA as I am sick to the teeth of the IAA way of things. The CAA are just better in every way from there speed of getting things done not to mention cheaper prices. So my currnet situation is I have a good few hours build, x-country done here and I have a IAA class 1 medical. How do I change the lot to CAA and finish my PPL in the UK ? Thanks a mill from one grumpy pilot in the making :ugh:

Speak to the people dealing with pilot training in the CAA who will be able to tell you what you have to do.
It's good to hear that someone is impressed with the UK CAA - most posts on here are not very complimentary but I guess it's all relative! In truth, I suspect you'll find that all CAAs around Europe will disappoint you in one way or another if you give them a chance, either through their own doing or from the absurd hoops that EASA is making us all (and that includes CAAs) jump through.
Considering that you havent obtained a PPL, how much interaction have you had with the IAA? And what have they done to upset you?
