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.

Also editorial amendments have been made, including the updating of references to the Air Navigation Order 2009 and the inclusion of a glossary. This amendment updates a contact address in Chapter 14.

Please note: Changes to the Air Navigation Order 2016, effective from 30 July 2018 will require the renumbering of all articles quoted in CAP658, as well as expanding the specific content of some regulations . Details of the amendment to ANO 2016 can be found in CAP 1763. Until CAP658 is amended, please refer to the text within CAP1763 for details of the up to date regulations.

CAP 658 will be superseded in due course by a new volume of CAP722. Until then, CAP658 should continue to be used, with the changes described above.
