A a result of Brexit the United Kingdom (UK) will cease to be a member of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) on 31st December 2020. here are some Frequently asked Questions in relation to the UK leaving EASA;
  • Will ACS Flight Training Continue to hold an EASA approval? ACS Flight Training will continue to hold an European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) approval from 1st January 2021, this means that we can offer training towards both a U.K. Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) licence and an EASA licence.
  • What will happen with my EASA Private Pilots Licence (PPL)? You EASA PPL will revert to a UK PPL on the 1st January 2021.
  • What will be the privileges of a Light Aircraft Pilots Licence (LAPL)? Holders of the LAPL will not be able to pilot flights into Europe from 1 January 2021 because it will become a UK National licence with UK-only privileges unless the EU agrees to recognise it.
  • How will ACS Flight Training get around the issue of the EASA Instrument Rating (IR) skills test having to be conducted in the airspace of an EASA state? We are awaiting further guidance on a workable solution however we have a number of viable options
