Q.1 .I want to transfer State of Licence Issue of my PART-FCL licence to Ireland. Am I eligible, and if so, how much does it cost, how do I pay and where do I send it to?
A. The transfer of State of licence issue process is started by completing the application form and sending it together with a full copy of your existing PART-FCL licence, copies of the last 3 pages of your logbook, a copy of your passport, two signed and dated passport photographs and the current licence issue fee.
The complete application should be sent to:-
Personnel Licensing Office Irish Aviation Authority The Times Building 11-12 D'Olier Street Dublin 2 Ireland
You should note that the transfer process can take up to 12 weeks to complete.
Q.2. I have applied for a transfer of State of licence issue to Ireland. Is it ready yet?
A. In order to issue a PART-FCL licence under the transfer of State of licence issue process, the IAA must have received the licence and medical information forms (commonly referred to as Doc. 155 forms), including any required medical reports, from your current State of Licence Issue.
The IAA Aeromedical Section will issue a replacement PART-MED Medical certificate upon receipt of the medical information form (and any required medical reports), and will then pass that medical certificate to the Personnel Licensing Office. A copy of the replacement medical certificate will also be e-mailed to you, if an e-mail address was provided with the application for licence transfer – Note:- the issue of the IAA Medical Certificate does not mean that your licence is ready to be issued!
As soon as the Personnel Licensing Office is in receipt of the IAA medical certificate and the licence information form (Doc. 155) from your current State of licence issue, you will be contacted to make arrangements for the surrender of your existing PART-FCL licence and the hand-over of the Irish PART-FCL licence (Note: under PART-FCL rules, you shall hold only one PART-FCL licence at any time, so the IAA must be in receipt of your existing PART-FCL licence before it can handover the replacement licence). Contact is via e-mail, please ensure a valid e-mail address was provided with the application for licence transfer.
If you wish to enquire about the progress of a licence transfer application, we would prefer you to e-mail your enquiry to email@example.com, if at all possible. However, you should note that the transfer process can take up to 12 weeks to complete, so we would respectfully request that you only make an enquiry if you have not been contacted by the IAA after this period has elapsed.
