EASA Validation of UK License

Afternoon all,

I have recently obtained a validation from an EASA state which enables me to fly EASA aircraft for 1 year on my UK license. My question is which medical needs to be valid, I am assuming it's the EASA medial as it's an EASA aircraft bit I'm not sure.

Any insight would be appreciated.

That depends on the type of validation. An EASA class 1 medical is required for a validation for commercial air transport and other commercial activities. Otherwise, an ICAO Class 2 is sufficient.

Morning Contact Approach and Selfin,

Thank you for the info, the validation is for CAT.

In the link, article 5 states that an EASA Medical is required to be valid for the validation, which I have so I was under the impression that the UK Medical is not required to fly EASA aircraft?

Thank you again for clarification.

That's correct, the UK medical is not sufficient for EASA validations that will be used in CAT and other commercial activities.

With regard to your EASA Validation of your UK Licence, was it a straight quick process?. I have an Irish Passport and a UK Licence and have been offered a full time contract in the EU but must have a validation or licence converted to EASA.

Unfortunately it's not a quick process.

You will need to have an EASA Medical, ELP Test, complete 2 ATPL Exams and complete a skills test on the aircraft type that is current in your license.

However, it is worth it if you can get your employer to organise and pay for it.

You will have to do the Air Law Exam and possibly the Operational Procedures Exam depending on the State that issues your validation.

Not ideal I know but like I said, if the employer pays for it then you have nothing to lose.
