Reminder: GA Pilots

28th February 2018

From 8th April this year:

- Pilots flying any aircraft with an EASA airworthiness certification will need an EASA licence, wherever they fly. Any pilot who doesn’t have a valid EASA PPL or LAPL will not be able to legally fly these aircrafts after this date, even in the UK.

- Pilots with a ‘national’ PPL, or an NPPL, will still be able to fly non-EASA or ‘Annex II’ aircrafts (which includes microlights, ex-military, vintage and kit-built) after this date in the UK.

- Pilots with an expired 'JAR' PPL will lose all the privileges of their licence until they have converted to an EASA version - although the licence itself will not be cancelled.
