My Flyer ID has changed, can I get my A2 Certificate updated

You have just been issued a new Flyer ID, but your A2 CofC still says your old Flyer ID, what do you do?

The CAA has issued the below advice for anyone whose Flyer ID has changed and they have already been awarded an A2 CofC by UAVHub.

RAEs should not reissue A2 or GVC certificates if only the Flyer ID has changed since the certificate was issued. The A2 CofC and GVC certificates should represent the candidate as they were when their GVC or A2 CofC certificate was issued by the RAE e.g. the Flyer ID at that time. By amending the certificates it would give an inaccurate representation of what was issued by the RAE.

If an applicant is issued with a new Flyer ID, after their A2 CofC or GVC is issued, this should be carried on their person as a separate printout or screenshot. This would work in a similar way to pilots who have a Flyer ID but do not hold an A2 CofC or GVC e.g. they have to produce a printout or screenshot.

The only time the RAE would amend the Flyer ID on a GVC certificate is if they were applying for the addition of fixed-wing or multi-rotor privileges, or if there was a mistake with the original issued certificate.

What to do

Print out or keep a screenshot with you of your A2 Certificate of Competency. The certificate is still valid. You will not be issued a new certificate by UAVHUB with your new Flyer ID
