SFCL update – conversion date extended to 8th December 2023

During a routine liaison meeting this week, the CAA advised in confidence that they intend to seek an extension of the SFCL licence conversion period to 8th December 2023 to facilitate what is described as a ‘licence transformation review’. This afternoon 2nd July CAA announced formally that an extension to 8th December 2023 will take place. No further detail is available.

The BGA is updating its published SFCL conversion information to reflect the revised date of 8th December 2023. Meanwhile, the BGA will continue to press the CAA for details and engagement on the way forward.
