Equivalence of pilot licences are not fair for the UK, in a sense I feel that UK has been abused by Europe.

It is possible to have a UK license validated by a EU state but only for a limited time and it seem that it is at the discretion of the member state (might need to read the document again) Also if you read the appendix there are some minimum required which mean that if you are a low time pilot you have no chance of getting a validation.

I wish I had spotted this before surely I would have gone for a transfer to EASA, in the end Brexit + COVID have put an end to my prospect of becoming a pilot, I am sure there would be others in the same boat.

Why did everyone expect the EU to give us special treatment - we chose to leave and we negotiated the poor deal we left on. Same goes for the fishermen frankly.

But at least we got that £350 million a week for the NHS just in time for Covid...

Because the vast majority of the population hasn't a clue about what was involved! Another area to be hit is mail-order sales between the EU and UK, where import charges and VAT are now the norm, with the recipients typically unaware they will be charged these extra costs and in many cases rejecting the orders before delivery. Some companies on both sides have stopped sales.

But at least we got that £350 million a week for the NHS just in time for Covid...
Yes that was great timing, and who could have predicted how valuable it was going to be?

But, of course you didn't get that £350m per week and it won't be going to the NHS

Just received this from my AME.

This message is aimed at our many clents who operate now on non-UK, EASA licences.
Many of you will be aware that we have sought approval from several EASA states, but as of today, 19 Feb 2021, none of us are yet approved. If you need re-validation, or renewal of a non-UK medical in the near future you will need to find somewhere else to be seen.

For anyone who it stuck for options - an extract from an email received from Gloster Aviation Medicals 03-Feb-21

“We are pleased to announce that Dr Emma Ramsay has now been approved to offer EASA medicals to pilots with EU licences. Her working days are Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.


Please book online in the normal way and choose the EASA option, we have limited the choice to EASA Class 1 only. If you have an EU issued PPL/LAPL licence and require a EASA Class 2/LAPL then please call or email us prior to booking in.

The EASA medical certificates Emma will issue are from Malta, however they are valid for all EU licences.

You will need to complete page 1 of the following form: https://www.transport.gov.mt/TM-CAD-...ue-5.pdf-f6004
Please bring this to your appointment along with your EU licence and current EASA medical certificate.

EASA medicals are an additional £13. Emma is able to do a UK CAA medical at the same time as an EASA medical and in this case the UK CAA medical will be substantially discounted. We will update the ‘Fees’ page of our website in due course.”

UK CAA 14 ATPL Exams Validity EASA

Anyone know what the validity of theoretical ATPL (A) exams completed with the UK CAA before the 31st December 2020 and validated by an EASA member state are?

I completed them in late 2019 and had them verified by the Irish IAA. I have a valid IAA PPL but I am being told by my ATO to check if those exams are still valid to use for CPL and IR training.


This is the most relevant information I have found on the EASA website, although I’m still confused as to what is accepted:

“The certificate of completion of the ATPL theoretical knowledge examination issued by the UK civil aviation authority before the end of the transition period is valid and recognised in the EU only until December 31, 2020In order to continue relying on that ATPL theoretical knowledge examination issued by the UK for the purpose of obtaining a Part-FCL license the student should transfer his/her training before January 1, 2021 to a training organisation under oversight of an EASA Member State or EASA. In such case the student should also apply to the competent licensing authority of an EASA Member State for a formal assessment of the further hours of training required. The new EU competent authority will be the one to whom the student will apply for the licence issue.”

Thanks in advance for any help, suggestions etc.!

LICENSE COVERSION FROM EASA TO UK CAA

hi all,

Does anybody know if it is still possible to convert a non-UK EASA license to a UK CAA License? There is no information anywhere on the internet.
Will it be possible to keep both licenses valid at the same time?
Will the UK CAA accept a non-UK EASA Class 1 Medical?

So many questions, so little answers to find. Hope somebody can help out! Cheers!

I suppose the question is why would you want to do that now? As a non-UK EASA licence holder you are permitted to fly G reg aircraft in UK for up to two years before you need to hold a UK CAA licence.

Once you have been issued with the UK licence (a third country licence) you would be able to retain both. Just as you can hold any number of other licences (apart from another EASA member state).

I imagine that you would be required to have a UK AME medical examination although the UK seem to have relinquished everything else in terms of licensing so perhaps not.

I spoke to CAA in January as I did a SOLI transfer. They said in March they will issue instructions on SKYWISE on how to reclaim our UKCAANational licences for those of us who had to transfer out. We will then be able to hold both licences. The details of how medical and ratings can maintained I suspect will be made clear on the SKYWISE.
