Good Morning,

Posting here because it seems a good place to ask a licensing question.
Date of initial issue of my ATPL was April 2013. Thatís what was on the most recent issue of my licence after the latest type rating 3 years ago.
I have just received a new licence to include an aerobatics rating. Now, the date of initial issue states September 2023. I spoke to a chap in FCL who said this is correct. Any thoughts? Doesnít seem right to me. Initial Issue would imply when I first gained the licence, surely, not just the adding of a secondary rating?
Iím talking about the UK CAA, by the way.

This makes no sense. When a license is issued it automatically invalidates the previous version.

Your new licence is a UK Part-FCL Licence, your previous licence was a UK EASA Licence so the new licence indicates the initial issue date of your UK Part-FCL Licence. Look at the front page, you will see the difference.

Whopity, thanks, that hadnít occurred to me; the old licence does indeed say UK CAA European Union.. the new one UK CAA United Kingdom on the front. Makes sense as the last issue in early 2020 was pre change to back to the national licence.
