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.

All training providers and applicants need to be aware that Amendment (EU) 2019/1747 to Commission Regulation (EU) 1178/2011, has been published, and came into effect on 11 November 2019.

The main objective of the amended regulation is to resolve inconsistencies identified after the adoption of the FCL implementing rules.

There are some significant changes affecting theoretical examinations, night rating course validity, IR requirements, instructor privileges and conditions, to name a few. 

The complete legislation is available on the EUR-Lex website.

This document provides details of the main changes only.
