Flying G-Reg Aircraft in Europe with an EASA Licence?

Can someone please explain simply the rules with regards to licencing and aircraft registration...

Can I fly a G-Reg aircraft in Ireland on an Irish EASA licence?

I was told you need 2 of 3 things from the following to fly: Aircraft, Licence, Airspace.

So for the above example I have an Irish licence in Irish airspace so the plane registration shouldn't matter??

Similarly if I flew a G-Reg plane in the UK on a non-UK licence that supposedly would be OK following what I said above but I know you can't do that currently.

So if anyone can explain simply how to know where and what you can fly with your licence that would be great!

Thanks

Only the state with whom the aircraft is registered can authorise who can fly it, wherever the flight is to take place in the world. If you wish to fly a UK registered aeroplane using your EASA licence then you must apply to the UK CAA to do so.

You have the airspace and a licence, how do you fly without the third?

General validation for EU pilots

Under ICAO rules, a pilot wishing to operate an aircraft which has a different State of Registry to the state that issued that pilot’s licence must have a validation from the relevant authorities.

This means that flight crew carrying a non-UK CAA licence, issued by an EASA Member State, who operate UK-registered aircraft must carry a ‘general validation’ with their licence. This is issued by the UK CAA. This is available here for download:This validation applies to any licence issued prior to 1 January 2021 including any rating included within that licence that remains valid until 31 December 2022.

Does this include a 'SOLI'd' licence that was applied for before 1/2021 but completed and delivered after 1/2021?

No, the licence has to have been issued before 1 Jan 2021.

There is a separate validation for Former UK Part-FCL Licenseholders - CAP2085:

justmaybe This provides the validation you require:
  1. Until 31/12/2021
  2. Provided EASA license issued before 01/04/2021
