For the moment, we now have significantly longer processing times about 25 workingdays, than the normal about 10 working days for complete cases involving flight crew licence and ATCO certificates (not medicine).

This is due to a high influx of cases in combination with a lack of resources.

We strive to reduce processing times as soon as possible. If it is difficult to ring us at telephone time, you have the opportunity to send an e-mail to our function mailbox. There the licensing officer continuously takes care of and responds to the messages that come to this box.

Information regarding licence transfer in the light of Brexit

The Swedish Transport Agency has realised that it will not be able to finish the process for all pilots who have requested a transfer of licence and medical certificate from the UK before a possible hard Brexit. The consequence for these pilots is that they will not be able to fly aircrafts registered in an EASA member state after a hard Brexit. To enable these pilots to continue flying, the Swedish Transport Agency will offer the possibility to seek an exemption from the requirements regarding licence and medical verification, as this is the most time-consuming part of the process. This means that a pilot who is granted an exemption will be issued a Swedish licence and medical certificate, even though the licence and medical verification from the UK CAA has not yet been completed. However, the exemption will come with the following conditions.

  1. The verification process will be completed as soon as possible. If the Swedish Transport Agency finds that the licence, or medical certificate, issued by the UK CAA has exemptions or conditions unacceptable to the Swedish Transport Agency the transfer of licence will be stopped and the issued licence and medical certificate revoked.
  2. If the pilot knowingly provides incorrect or fraudulent information, the transfer of licence will be stopped and the issued licence and medical certificate revoked.
  3. The issued licence, associated ratings or certificate and medical certificate will be issued with the same expiry date as the ones held in the UK equivalent, up to a maximum of 8 months from the date of the exemption.

It is important to know that, if the pilot is subject to a ramp inspection, other member states may not recognize this exemption and may ground the pilot.

If you wish to seek the exemption explained above, please submit an application to certifikat.w3d3@transportstyrelsen.se and mark the subject as "Exemption regarding licence transfer due to Brexit".

The application will be subject to a fee of 1 400 SEK.

Information about Electronic logbooks

Electronic logbooks are acceptable for all types of application provided they have been printed, signed and dated. The pilot or student pilot is required in accordance with FCL.045 to present, without undue delay, his/her flight time record for inspection upon request by an authorised representative of a competent authority.
