Exams transfer to an EASA state

Exams transfer to an EASA state

Have someone who has passed all but on of the ATPL theory exams prior to 31st Dec in the U.K., and wants to do the Modular CPL / IR later this year. but is now concerned as to how usable a U.K. Cpl will be if applying for a job which requires licence transfer to the the likes of the IAA or Austro Control.

the U.K. says it will accept transfers of EASA to U.K. licences from 1st April, but no such reciprocity yet forthcoming from EASA.

Is there any of the friendly CAAs like Netherlands or Denmark which will accept the passes?

if so it seems sensible to go for an EASA licence and then convert to the U.K. if required.

It seems to be pretty much a no, they might have been in a beter position had they completed all exams.

The Danish seem to be fairly pragmatic, so your best bet is go speak to them.

Why would an EASA state accept UK exams when the latter is no longer part of EASA?

Setting aside partial licenses, even ICAO full ATPL holders ie Australia, NZ, US, Canada etc all have to do the full conversion if they want an EASA license. All 14 exams, LST, full initial medical. No consideration for experience or licenses/ratings currently held.

As the UK CAA is now an autonomous national regulator, why would it be treated differently than other ICAO states?

I do agree that the timing of having a nearly completed license is unfortunate.
