This might be a useful workaround if we left EASA, allowing an commercial pilot and/or instructor to fly/instruct any EASA aircraft anywhere but also retain the privileges for instructing/examining IMC ratings and sign off SEP revalidations. Whether its worth the extra cost/hassle for the limited extra privileges is debatable.
David - I got a UK national CPL and Mrs derekf for a UK national PPL issues when we SOLI's based on our EASA license. CAA provide all details on how to do this specifically for people who SOLI away from the UK and also remind you it's only valid for Annex I aircraft (used to be Annex II)
It will allow us to maintain UK 'limited' privileges but is there to provide the ability to potentially convert these to UK Part-FCL licenses if we crash out (the EASA equivalent).
The downside (other than the cost) might be that we may need to maintain two medicals
Lots may happen before December, so this is a risk based approach we've taken specifically to allow flying EU reg a/c in EU (and potentially instructing) in the event of a painful exit
You're correct about IR(R) - can't instruct for that unless your license was issued by the UK.
The FCL.945 for a CRI is also only available on a UK license so I have lost that with my SOLI'd license.
