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.
The CAA charges a fee for the issue, renewal, conversion or revalidation of a pilot licence or rating.
If you are making your application using a paper form, you will be able to include payment details along with your application.
If you are using an online application form, you will be able to make a payment using the WorldPay system. Instructions on how to use WorldPay are included in the online form.
Additional costs, such as the charge for using our secure courier service, are payable at the same time as the fee for your application. All underpaid postage fees are recovered before your new licence can be issued.
Please see below our licence issue pricing details.
(free if application is made at the same time for the issue of a flight crew licence or if a UK issued flight crew licence is already held)
