General Aviation Pilot Licensing Review Phase 2: Helicopters

Closed 22 May 2024

Opened 13 Mar 2024


In October 2022, we published CAP 2335 (General Aviation Pilot Licensing & Training Simplification – Phase 1: Strategic Direction), as part of a 3-phase programme to simplify pilot licensing and training for the UK’s General Aviation (GA) community.

The subsequent GA community response (CAP 2532) showed strong support in several key areas for updating our current legislation with regards to licensing and training.

This consultation (Phase 2) will explore these key areas in more detail, to ensure that we are working towards the goals of the community, whilst maintaining safety and legislative compliance where appropriate.

Why your views matter

The outcome of the consultation will help finalise the proposals for the simplification of licencing and training. The final proposals and legal drafting will be developed with the Department for Transport and presented for legislative amendment in Spring 2025.
