UK JAR-FCL license and posible Brexit date

Hi
I have a UK CPL(H) JAR-FCL licence. (im Danish)
I haven't been flying for about 3 years now.
But I really would like to get airborne again this year and that have been my plan for some time.
I need to convert to a EASA license and get my type-rating valid again (R44) as well as my medical, (now its a class 2 medical.)

But now I just have seen the UK CAA have made a webpage about Brexit.
So my questions is now.
Can't I get my license converted to EASA because of the date 29.03.19 is just around the corner or what can I do?
Can I convert my license without any valid type-rating and medical?
What would the right order be if there is a chance?

I really appreciate some answers (hopefully positive)
Thanks in advanced.

Don't know but there is a long thread in rumours and news about this. Seeing as we're asking for an extension from the EU today you may have more time. Good luck!

Hey people.
I was wondering if those "EASA/FAA dual training" providers working in the U.S. holding an ATO approval issued by the CAA UK will be no longer able to train for any EASA certification in case of a "hard Brexit".
Anybody can confirm this assumption?

Any UK school would be in trouble if we left EASA

There aren't any; all third country ATO approvals are issued directly by EASA. Those schools (such as Naples Air Center) that piggy-back UK ATOs instead of holding their own approval, will not be able to train for EASA qualifications in the event of a 'no-deal' brexit. The same is true of the third country based elements of, for example, CAE and L3.

Bob, I'm talking about helicopters. There are only a few pilot schools outside EU providing pilot training for EASA certif. Most of them are located in Florida and working as ATOs under a GBR approval. All the other ATOs located outside EU and managed directly by EASA are for aeroplane. Naples Air Center's ATO approval has been revoked a long time ago.

Doesn't matter, the UK CAA cannot issue an EASA approval to any organisation that has its principal place of business in a third country (see Article 78(1) of the Basic Regulation). Name any Florida based ATO that you believe is approved by the UK CAA and I will guarantee that it is either operating as a satellite of an ATO based within the UK or is approved directly by EASA. Naples Air Center's approval was indeed revoked by EASA in 2014 and it is currently offering EASA training under the approval issued to Andrewsfield Aviation.

Correct, and a number already do. However, the question related specifically to approvals issued by the UK CAA.
