EASA training with VA Airline Training and Brexit
Discussions between the UK and the EU are on-going with the Brexit deadline further extended to 31st October 2019 to enable preparations for an orderly withdrawal from the EU by the UK. Irrespective of the final ‘deal’, VA Airline Training reasonably expects that the UK CAA will remain within the EASA regulatory framework.
Notwithstanding, VA Airline Training applied for and has already been approved by EASA as a 3rd country Approved Training Organisation (ATO) which will become effective from the date the UK finally exits the EU – see communication to VA Airline Training from EASA on this page.
EASA Approved training courses delivered/certificates issued by VA Airline Training will continue uninterrupted under EASA oversight and are therefore unaffected by the Brexit discussions.
