The UK government has been clear that as the UK exits the EU, its aim is to ensure continued transport connectivity in support of successful economic and social ties and as part of a deep and special future relationship.
The government continues to pursue an agreed Brexit by 31 January 2020 but different scenarios are possible, including that the Uk will leave the EU without agreement. In light of the ongoing uncertainty Flight Performance Training has applied directly to EASA to become a third country training organisation therefore maintaining an EASA ATO and continuity to our clients whatever the outcome.
