Since 2009; RAASA has issued 5,500 NPLs of which only 1,980 have been renewed and are current.
And for other license types?

I would suggest the decline is as a result of people like myself, going on and doing a PPL licence and then not renewing their NPL licence. Mine has not been renewed for four years now but should circumstances change, I would like to revert back to the NPL in later years without too much fuss if that is at all possible. I am enjoying flying the bigger machines at present but as finances allow or don't, I may find myself having to revert back to a smaller two seater aircraft.

Hi

What is the latest on the move? When will RAASA transfer to CAA and how will it affect license and ATF renewals?

Thanks for the info.

I assume they still accept and issue new ratings, license renewals, ATFs, etc. until 1 April?

Not so sure about that as the notice mentions that valid licences, ratings etc. issued before the notice will remain valid until their expiry date. It is unclear what happens during the period from date of notice up to 1 April 2019.
Pierre, can you perhaps advise?
