If anything else were the case, then all original PMD holders with EASA licences (thousands of ‘em) would have to redeclare to make use of something they already have.
The CAA have simply not updated the form, and when they do so, I will eat my hat if they then tell all those with previous PMDs and EASA licences that they need to redeclare.
Yes, that is correct. That quote relates to the old rules before the new exemption. It hasn't been updated to reflect tbe new exemption relating to EASA PPL and LAPL license holders flying EASA aircraft.
Correct, they have not updated their web portal to allow people to take advantage of their recent concession. But if / when they do, I agree that there would be no reason on earth for people who have already been able to declare (because they hold a license type already on the existing list) to have to re-declare.
All we need is an update to allow the new group of people covered by their exemption to be able to self declare. How hard can it be!
