The UK pilot licences and associated certificates are valid and recognised in the EASA Member States for purposes of flying ‘EASA-aircraft’ without additional requirements or evaluation only until 31 December 2020. After that date, those licenses and associated certificates, including instructor and examiner certificates, issued by UK CAA will be treated as a third country certificates.
The below questions address mostly the situations whereby a holder of a UK issued license or certificate did not transfer that license or certificate to an EASA Member State before 1 January 2021. If such a transfer has not occurred, the UK issued license or certificate will no longer be valid and recognised in the EU as of that date in accordance with Regulation (EU) No 2018/1139 and will be considered under that regulation as a third country license/certificate. That request for transfer of a license/certificate shall be done in accordance with the application process and forms developed by the receiving competent authority of an EASA Member State, which may not necessarily be the same in all EASA Member States.
