Starting PPL in Scotland with Looming Brexit

Hi all,

I used to lurk on these forums when I was a teenager (having wanted to be a pilot since I was a kid), but only now am I in the position to finally start my PPL in central Scotland.

However, I'm really concerned about the potential impact of Brexit, particularly if there is 'no deal'. From my understanding, the UK will be out of the EASA by the end of 2019 assuming there is a short 'grace period' that will prevent licenses being invalid and aircraft grounded.

If there is a hard Brexit, who is going to issue my license and will any of my hours of training under the EASA regime be invalid? I've asked this question (via email) to a few flight schools and nobody seems to really know...

Thanks in advance!
