Should no ‘Brexit’ deal be­tween the EU and the UK be fi­nally rat­i­fied, ex­ist­ing train­ing or­gan­i­sa­tion ap­provals and/or dec­la­ra­tions would re­main valid un­der UK law, says the CAA.

Where a Com­pe­tent Au­thor­ity other than the CAA would be the State of Li­cence is­sue, the EC has said that it would not recog­nise train­ing cour­ses con­ducted by Uk-is­sued ap­proved or de­clared train­ing or­gan­i­sa­tions where train­ing for a li­cence, rat­ing or cer­tifi­cate is com­pleted af­ter 29 March 2019. How­ever, EASA has said that it would ac­cept third coun­try ap­pli­ca­tions from UK Ap­proved Train­ing Or­gan­i­sa­tions, and such or­gan­i­sa­tions may need to de­cide whether, in a non­nego­ti­ated with­drawal, they wish to re­tain a na­tional ap­proval and also seek ap­proval.

‘There­fore, stu­dents un­der­tak­ing or con­sid­er­ing com­menc­ing a course of the­o­ret­i­cal knowl­edge or flight train­ing for a pi­lot’s li­cence, rat­ing or cer­tifi­cate are rec­om­mended to ap­proach their cur­rent or po­ten­tial fu­ture train­ing provider to es­tab­lish what ap­provals the or­gan­i­sa­tion cur­rently holds and what ad­di­tional ap­provals it in­tends to seek in the event of non-ne­go­ti­ated with­drawal,’ says the CAA. ‘This should as­sist them in de­ter­min­ing how best to achieve their own per­sonal train­ing aims. The CAA in­tends to con­tinue to recog­nise cur­rent (and valid) EASA cer­tifi­cates and dec­la­ra­tions for an ini­tial pe­riod of up to two years, but no de­ci­sion has been made about on­go­ing va­lid­ity af­ter this pe­riod.’
