Is a PPL or a LAPL issued in the UK still recognized in an EASA Member State after the end of 2020?

Answer

As of that date the holder of a UK issued licence must apply for its conversion in accordance with Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 2020/723.  The conversion process will require you to undertake additional training, theoretical and flight examination again.
