Deferment of the requirement to hold Balloon Pilot Licence (BPL) and Sailplane Pilot Licence (SPL)

Due to the national Covid pandemic restrictions, the affected GA community pilots, organisations, and the CAA need more time to complete the licence conversion process.

The CAA has published an exemption deferring the date that balloon and glider pilots have to hold a UK Part-BFCL BPL and UK Part-SFCL SPL.

The new date is 8 December 2021.
