CAA reminder on EU-UK licence transition

The UK Civil Aviation Authority has issued a reminder to holders of EASA approvals and personnel licences that they will need to apply to the CAA to obtain the UK equivalent approvals and licences required to continue providing services to UK organisations and operating or providing maintenance for UK registered aircraft.  
The CAA adds that a smaller number than expected of Part 145/component/C rated companies that support GA aircraft have applied for a UK approval so far, noting that this is particualrly so for organisations based outside of the UK, which may be less aware of the coming changes that come into effect from 01 January 2023.

Those that may be affected include:

  • Maintenance, repair and overhaul organisations; Part-145 and Part-CAO (aircraft and/or component rated)
  • Continuing Airworthiness Management Organisations; Part-CAO and Part-CAMO
  • Training organisations
  • Pilots
  • Engineers

The CAA had previously advised in July that applications should be made before the end of August in order to guarantee they would be processed befor year end, but it appears that some organisations/individuals have failed to do heed the advice, either through lack of awareness or choosing to remain EU-certified only.
