CAA announces temporary service closures

The CAA has announced that the processing of personnel licence and rating applications will be affected by a major IT systems upgrade.

The CAA has announced that the processing of personnel licence and rating applications will be affected by a major IT systems upgrade.

The upgrade will be necessary to enable the CAA to start issuing the new EASA licence formats from 17 September.

As a result, the CAA’s Licensing and Medical departments will be unable to process any applications on Thursday 13 and Friday 14 September.

Additionally, the counter service at its Gatwick headquarters will be unavailable and telephone service enquiries will only be handled during the mornings on both days.

Anyone who wishes to apply for a new UK National or JAR licence, or make a change to an existing UK National or JAR licence, will need to submit their application by 7 September 2012 in order to ensure it is processed before the upgrade.

After 17 September 2012 only EASA and National licences will be issued.
