UK Civil Aviation Regulations

These are published by the CAA on our UK Regulations pages. EU Regulations and EASA Access Guides published by EASA no longer apply in the UK. Our website and publications are being reviewed to update all references. Any references to EU law and EASA Access guides should be disregarded and where applicable the equivalent UK versions referred to instead.

CAP 804 covered UK requirements for pilot licensing and a guide to the new European Flight Crew Licensing requirements to April 2015. 

This edition of CAP 804 Flight Crew Licensing remains available on the National Archive for reference only.

A new and restructured Air Navigation Order came into force on 25 August 2016. Article references have completely changed and new UK Part-FCL regulations have been developed since CAP 804 was last issued. In the light of these significant changes the need for a restructured and updated version of CAP 804 that reflects current UK law is currently being reviewed. You may find much of the guidance that you need on the Licences and other approvals pages of the CAA website.

The new Air Navigation Order 2016 is available at Legislation.gov.uk.

Current UK aircrew regulations are available online on the regulation pages of the CAA website.
