I am not allowed to post links for some reason but if you look at his post from the 29/4/2018 he states:

"But the commission immediately pointed out that we cannot remain in EASA because, as the rules make clear, this is open only to EU members."

Well the Commission did nothing of the sort - all they pointed out was that EASA was still going to have the ECJ jurisdiction, a point the UK Government accepted when they changed the definition of their red-line on the ECJ from 'direct' jurisdiction to 'indirect' jurisdiction. SKY news did a much better job of explaining the state of play than Richard North.

Again sorry that I am unable to post a link but if you do a search for: 'Govt to stay in EU air safety body in blurring of Brexit red line' you should find the article.
