ATCO licence grace period
Do you need to revalidate or renew your ATCO licence, ratings or endorsements?
Regulation 2015/340 states that the CAA MAY allow the privileges of a licence to be exercised for a period of eight weeks after successful completion of the applicable examination(s) and assessment(s), pending the issue of the licence, rating or endorsement. This is to allow the CAA to process licence applications.
If a valid licence is not received within 10 working days of the acknowledgement of their application, and this is preventing the applicant exercising the privileges of their licence, the applicant MUST contact their CAA Inspector ATS (Operations) to request permission to use the eight week grace period. Privileges may not be used after the eight week period unless in possession of a valid licence.
