Reciprocal agreement with the EU on the transfer of UK CAA Flight Crew Licences.
To seek a reciprocal agreement between the UK and EU with the transfer of UK CAA Flight Crew Licences to EASA member states to avoid applicants having to convert their licences by retaking all fourteen ATPL exams in an EASA state, a skills tests, an EASA ELP test and class 1 EASA medical.
The aviation industry has been brought to its knees by the Covid-19 pandemic having a significant effect on Pilot mental health and wellbeing and now Pilots who wish to transfer their licences to Europe are facing the prospect of having to re-sit exams, adding severe pressure and huge expense at an already very stressful time.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
