UK General Aviation Brexit – Where to find information – EASA, CAA

Is Brexit going to be an example of controlled flight into terrain? Or a runway that leads to new adventures? The one thing you can say for sure about Brexit is that everyone has an opinion about it but no one really knows for sure what the impact will be on any industry, let alone UK General Aviation.

There are plenty of people within the aviation industry expressing their views but you have no way of telling whose predictions are accurate.

The situation is changing and evolving so there’s no point in claiming anything to be accurate and true without firm evidence.

The CAA and EASA are both issuing statements and updates to statements about changes to procedures, certificates, and licensing, but with large areas of uncertainty.

and as we all know (without the media reminding us every 5 minutes) businesses require certainty if they are to invest or expand.

So while things remain uncertain confidence lessens and everyone feels like they’re scud-running rather than cruising under clear blue skies.

But what have the aviation authorities actually said and does it concur with what the media is saying?

With anything this complex it’s always best to go direct to the source, get informed, and then you can make up your own mind.

If you have a UK General Aviation business you might want to pour yourself a large coffee and visit the EASA website.

Scroll down to the paragraph entitled “The UK’s withdrawal from the EU”.

Then click on the “Notice to Stakeholders” link.

This opens a PDF document dated 13th April 2018 which lists the possible impact of Brexit on five categories.

These include various EASA certificate types, Aircraft Operators from the UK, and Aircraft registered in the UK.

The contents are self-explanatory so I won’t repeat them here and the document may have been updated by the time you watch this video.

If you do discover that this document has been changed or superseded then perhaps you would be kind enough to let everyone know by posting a comment below this video.

Below the link to that PDF you’ll find more information about the possible impact of Brexit on the EU aviation system.

And further paragraphs about EASA cooperating with UK authorities and how to keep yourself informed about the ongoing EU and UK withdrawal negotiations.

That’s the EASA view but what about the UK’s Civil Aviation Authority?

There’s general information here:

But to answer questions from those involved in UK General Aviation the best place to go is the CAA’s microsite which you’ll find here:

The CAA’s Brexit microsite contains sections for all those involved in the aviation industry; from Aerospace Design organisations to owners of UK registered aircraft.
