Motion text

That this House calls on the Government to negotiate a post Brexit reciprocal agreement between the UK and EU regarding the transfer of UK CAA Flight Crew Licences to EASA member states licences; further calls on the Chancellor of the Exchequer to put in place immediate financial support to help with the licence conversion costs to support the UK economy and prevent many more UK licensed pilots from losing their jobs, or being unable to secure highly-trained positions over their EU/EASA licensed counterparts; and requests the Chancellor considers other financial support for the Aviation Industry while it recovers beyond Brexit and covid-19 and strives to build resilience to cope with future changes to the industry.
