UK – EU Transition, and UK Civil Aviation Regulations

To access current UK civil aviation regulations, including AMC and GM, CAA regulatory documents, please use this link to UK Regulation. Please note, if you use information and guidance under the Headings below, the references to EU regulations or EU websites in our guidance will not be an accurate information or description of your obligations under UK law. These pages are undergoing reviews and updates.

You will have to go to an ATO where the Head of Training will determine how much training you may require before completing the proficiency check (LPC).

The amount of training to be done depends on many aspects such as:

  • the last time you have flown the aircraft
  • your experience
  • the complexity of the aircraft

When you have completed the training, the ATO needs to issue a completion certificate which you can present to the examiner before completing the LPC.

If your rating is at the back of your licence or your licence has expired the rating cannot be signed on the Certificate of Revalidation by the examiner and you will have to apply to the CAA.

You will need to complete online form SRG3108 and upload the relevant examiner report form:

Type Rating Renewal requirement for pilots who hold a Type rating on another licence

The UK CAA has adopted a derogation such that where a pilot holds a Type Rating issued by a third country and that rating is compliant with Annex I to the Convention on International Civil Aviation, the applicability of FCL.740 (b) may be based on the validity dates of the Type Rating of that other country.

The effect of this derogation is that to renew the type rating on a UK issued licence:

  • A pilot with a current and valid 3rd country type rating shall complete the revalidation requirements of FCL.740.A(a) and the aircraft category specific requirements for revalidation of the Part-FCL Type Rating; meaning that he must pass the proficiency check, but is not required to undergo training.


All relevant European regulations such as Part- ARO, ORO, CAT, SPA, NCC, NCO, MED are available on the link shown below.

For Flight Crew Regulations please refer to the consolidated version Commission Regulation (EU) No 1178/2011.

For other regulations such as Part-ORO, Part-ORA, please check the Air Operations regulations.
