It will also exclude applications for:
The new e-Licensing service has been designed to improve the application process for pilots, provide greater transparency regarding the requirements for issue of a licence, and improve visibility of how the application is progressing.
In most cases you will be able to significantly reduce the amount of paperwork required as part of the process, and we will be removing the need for submission of pilot logbooks to the CAA as part of an application in standard cases.
We have worked with a number of pilots and other organisations to help make sure we provide a genuine improvement to this service and are confident it will be a better user experience.
We have also streamlined our internal processing where possible and hope that use of the new system will enable us to reduce the turnaround times for standard applications and provide licences more quickly than before.
