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 presently offers an informal out-of-hours service, via the use of an out-of-hours contact number. This is in place to assist AOC Operators when an urgent operational need requires access to the CAA. Where an AOC Operator requests a Permit to Fly, to enable an aircraft to fly without a valid
Certificate of Airworthiness, or Certificate of Validity being in place, and this is issued outside of normal working hours.
For these services, application should be made in the first instance by email to
firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss specific requirements.
Standard turnaround for these products is five working days.
