Incorrect. The LAPL was an EASA EU wide sub ICAO licence. The Uk has left EASA and thats why a UK issued LAPL is no longer valid.

I never really saw the point of the LAPL in the first place. We have only ever trained for 2 of them since its inception. It saves nothing in training and being sub ICAO is very restrictive. Instead of creating another licence it would have been better to have an appropriate medical level for the the ICAO PPL.....
