Service Description

Are you a pilot planning to leave the territory of the European Union (EU) with an aircraft that is registered in a member state other than Germany? Then you can apply for automatic validation under certain conditions.

The ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) allows the automatic validation of flight crew licenses.

If you are a pilot and wish to leave the European Union (EU) with an aircraft registered in an EU member state other than Germany, you can apply for automatic validation and you will receive the note "This licence is automatically validated as per the ICAO attachment to this licence" under position XIII on the pilot's license. You will also receive a printed copy of the ICAO attachment.

You must then carry the latest edition of the ICAO attachment with you when you leave the EU. This must include

  • the ICAO registration number of the agreement recognizing the automatic validation of licenses
