The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has today published comprehensive information on the latest flight crew licensing requirements for UK licensed pilots. The new document, CAP 804, notifies the requirements for UK national licences and provides a complete guide to the new EASA licensing regulations.
The full publication is available for download from the Publications section of the CAAâ€™s websiteÂ www.caa.co.uk. Amendable, hard copies in A5 format will also be available from The Stationary Office (TSO)Â www.tso.co.uk. CAP 804 will become effective on 1 July 2012, to coincide with the implementation of the EASA Flight Crew Licensing regulations in the UK. The current licensing guidance document, known as LASORS, will then be withdrawn. Unlike LASORS, CAP 804 will be amended by re-issuing, adding and deleting individual pages as required.
More information on the introduction of EASA pilot licences, including a Quick Guide and a podcast, can be found atwww.caa.co.uk/eupilotlicensing.
