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.

About this consultation

The Secretary of State for Transport wishes to see that the UK benefits from being the best place in the world for general aviation. Our General Aviation (GA) strategy compliments and supports both government and our wider CAA strategy by detailing our approach to supporting and championing GA in the UK.

The UK is leaving the EASA system in 2021, and the GAU have made a commitment to the Secretary of State for Transport to undertake a “Post-Brexit GA Challenge”. This challenge will be one of the key mechanisms for enabling the CAA to help the GA community overcome the challenges, take advantage of the opportunities and mitigate the impact that leaving EASA poses.

The aviation industry has been severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic which continues to have a profound effect across individuals, businesses, associations and the CAA. We understand that GA communities do not have the same levels of resources as the commercial aviation sector, and may feel under threat or have different appetite for change.

This consultation is an opportunity for you to help achieve our ambition of making the UK the best place in the world for general aviation. Successfully delivering our objectives will only be possible if we work collaboratively

The CAA would therefore like to understand:

• how we can help the GA community (and its associated businesses and industries) flourish after leaving EASA, whilst identifying its specific priorities;

• how we can engage with and work more efficiently, constructively and collaboratively with GA communities in delivering our objectives;

• the priorities of those who are not part of the GA community when considering the future of General Aviation in the UK
