To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the likely impact on United Kingdom-United States trade relations of the proposals by the European Aviation Safety Agency to prohibit American-registered light aircraft owned in the United Kingdom from flying in the European Union; and what steps they are taking to mitigate any negative impact.
The EU has no proposals to prohibit US registered aircraft based in the UK from flying in the EU. However, under EU Regulation 216/2008 the pilots of such aircraft are required to be licensed to the same standards as pilots of aircraft registered in the EU. The US Government understand the reason for this requirement and have given no indication that it will affect UK/US trade relations.
