Quarantine and crew badge in the UK

I read there https://www.gov.uk/government/public...k-border-rules
that Pilots and crew are allowed not to self isolate provided they show a crew badge or ID.
What is a crew badge or ID? Is there an official definition?

I fly a privately owned C510 . I don't work for an AOC holder. I don't have a crew card issued by the operator of the aircraft.
I usually show my pilot license to get airside. In Dublin they would not let me airside without a "crew card". I add my name to the gendec as a passenger (good piece of advice from the FBO) and they let me go airside.
I have an AOPA crew card with my photograph on it. Does that piece of plastic qualify for a crew badge or ID ?

Thumbs up

I have used the https://ibac.org/aircrew-card/ for many years. Works well for me.

Thanks for the trick. Unfortunately my operator is not a member of that organization so I can't get a card issued by them.
Searching the web I could find crewidcard. They advertise themselves as Crewcard designers.
I'll order one and so I'll soon know whether it's a real business or a fake one.

As long as it looks important, it will be alright, even if it's a Mickey Mouse card.

Go to a local copy shop. 15 quid should do the job.

If you are an NBAA/EBAA/MEBAA or other association member that should be no issue

Do you use an corporate flight handling provider?
I had a card issued by Air Routing.

There is no legal authority for a crew ID card. It is just up to your company. If you are the company then you can make it yourself.

It is the airport airside access ID cards which are the official ones and they have to be issued by the airport concerned under UK NASP procedures. These cards are only valid for the airport which issues them but in practice they are widely accepted as proof of identity for crew airside access.

Not unless you are in Australia.
