• This section is about the CAA’s application processes. It gives details on which forms and other documents to send us when you apply for a licence, as well as information about how to renew your licence and make changes to it.

    Please note that you should only apply for a pilot’s licence once you have completed a training course provided by an approved training organisation (ATO).

    Detailed information on the requirements for each licence is available in the Requirements for EASA licences section.
