UK ATPL renewal in Asia

Morning team, I'm trying to locate someone in Asia who can renew a UK ATPL and A320 rating. Last did it pre covid with Green Dot in Bangkok, but it seems they're no longer in existence. Anybody got any recommendations?

Its was cheaper to fly to the UK to do than use Greendot. Also not sure they could do a UK one anyhow..

Has your UK ATPL License actually expired Luke? I take it you dont have a Part FCL UK (Blue) If so you will need to apply to The CAA to renew it.

Regard's.

Thanks for replies guys.

If anyone's interested, after a few days of research it seems it's now completely impossible to do in Asia. There's one UKCAA approved sim left out here, at HAITE in Singapore, but they don't have a UK ATO or any UK examiners on their books so they can't help us. The ones in BKK are no longer approved. Basically nobody's bothering to pay the CAA inspection fee any more since Brexit.

Off to Gatwick I go

I believe these CAE FSTDs are only locally qualified.

They are all EASA qualified still.

If it’s a renewal (rating expired) rather than a revalidation you’ll have to go through an ATO
