UK pilot licence will remain valid on UK registered aircraft even after the Brexit, says CAA.
The CAA said in a statement responding to Sky News story on UK aviation and Brexit, “It is misleading for Sky News to say that 35,000 pilots would need to renew their pilot’s licence in a ‘no-deal’ Brexit scenario. Both commercial and private UK pilot licences would remain valid for use on UK-registered aircraft as the United Kingdom is a signatory to the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Chicago Convention. Our licences are internationally recognised – including by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) – both now and after 29 March 2019.”
and added “The CAA will continue to issue and reissue pilots’ licences when they are lost, damaged, when details need to be changed or pilots’ privileges updated as we do now.”
