I am holder of a UK issued Part-FCL PPL licence, with a valid UK issued class 2 Medical Certificate. Can I fly an aircraft registered in one of the EASA Member States after December 31, 2020 on this basis?
Your UK issued pilot licence and medical certificate are considered as a third country licence and certificate as of January 01, 2021 and thus they are no longer recognised for flying an aircraft registered in an EASA Member State as of that date. In this case you may consider temporarily validating your UK license or converting it into an EU Part FCL license according to Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 2020/723.
For validations the application should be sent:
- for pilots residing within the territory of the Union – a competent authority of the Member State of a place where a pilot resides or is established;
- for pilots not residing in the territory of the Union – a competent authority of the Member State where the operator for which they are flying or intend to fly has its principal place of business, or where the aircraft on which they are flying or intend to fly is registered.
