Uk easa licence exchange after january 1st 2021

Hi does anyone know a way I can exchange my UK EASA to a EASA member state? I
I got my EASA licence in 2019 after a break from flying I also have a UK PPL. I did my SEP renewal in November 2020, and got my ratings on both licences. But with all the lock downs etc I did not know that most pilots exchanged their UK EASA to an EASA member state, most changed it to an Irish EASA one. I have found out I have lost the privileges of my UK EASA. I'm so upset. I have heard that some states may still exchange my license.
I have just joined the group and would love some help.
cheers

No they didn't, unless they had a particular reason such as professional pilots flying for a EU based airline. For the majority of PPL holders it is irrelevant.

No you haven't. The letters EASA should now be disregarded but your licence retains all its privileges and is also recognized world wide, nothing has changed in this regard. You no longer have the automatic right to fly aircraft registered to an EASA state without process. This is the same for most countries throughout the world. If you have the need to fly an aeroplane registered in a EASA state then it affects you but not otherwise.

Re UK EASA EXCHANGE

Thanks for the info. I have family in France so I may want to fly there from the UK. Or hire a plane in France. Not sure how it works now .
cheers

Flying from the UK to France in a G-reg aeroplane should present no more, or less, problems than before. Flight plan, GenDec, customs - and just go. No legal obstacles really.

Renting an F-reg will require you to have a validation of your UK licence from DGAC, there should be a process in place that you can find.

Hello everyone,
Has anyone here converted an UK PPL into an EASA? I would like to know the procedure to do so, and approx how long it took you.
