View Full Version : CAA court case and foreign licencing

15th Apr 2001, 14:55
Looking for some information on a court case that occured some time last year. The case was between a foreign licence holder (from memory the licence holder was an Australian)and the British CAA.
My understanding of the situation is that the foreign licence holder applied for a UK licence and was refused one (although he had a validation on his existing licence) and succesfully persued it through the courts.

Anyone have any more on this?

One of our crews met Flying Lawyer on a flight to the States - he was going skiing in Colorado over Easter.
If you do a Search for one of his posts, and check Profile, he gives his e-mail address.
You could e-mail him, if you have a good reason.
