EU exit

Please note that, in the event of UK participation in EASA and mutual recognition of licences and certificates ceasing, some CAA website content and application forms may continue to carry the EASA logo or reference the EU or EASA rather than the UK CAA in the short term. These will be updated in due course following the outcome of the transition period negotiations on the long-term aviation relationship between the UK and the EU. In the meantime, the guidance provided and the application forms accessed via the CAA website portal will continue to be valid.

Title:Publication of CAP 764: CAA Policy and Guidelines on Wind Turbines Issue 6
Description:The purpose of this Information Notice is to promulgate the publication of Issue 6 to CAP 764: CAA Policy and Guidelines on Wind Turbines. Issue 6 is publicised following a lengthy consultation with both external and CAA stakeholders. It simplifies radar effects paragraphs and returns the more complicated radar detail to CAP 670. Potential Mitigation Measures were also taken directly from CAP 670 therefore detailed explanations are removed from CAP 764 with only a summary retained. Issue 6 also incorporates CAA Policy Statements on the 'Lighting of Wind Turbine Generators in United Kingdom Territorial Waters (22 November 2012)' and the 'Failure of Aviation Warning Lights on Offshore Wind Turbines (27 April 2012)'. CAA Policy Statement 'Lighting of En-Route Obstacles and Onshore Wind Turbines (1 April 2010)' remains extant. Appendices concerning radar assessment methodology and references are removed, the latter being comprehensively covered by hyperlinks and footnotes within the document. Issue 6 has been comprehensively reviewed and updated where necessary to reflect current information and practices. It replaces Issue 5 completely.
