If no deal is agreed between the EU and the UK, air navigation service providers (ANSPs) might need to take action to maximise continuity and stability for the aviation sector. Actions required would depend on individual circumstances and are a matter for each business and individual to consider. This page sets what you need to consider to prepare for such an eventuality.

Once the UK formally withdraws from the EU, then air traffic control licences would not be able to be exchanged. If you have already exchanged your licence to the relevant national aviation authority, then there would be no impact on you.

Would the UK recognise European air traffic control licences?

Yes, the UK intends to give full recognition of basic training that has taken place in EASA-approved training organisations
