A UK CAA spokesman said: “The government, the UK Civil Aviation Authority and the entire aviation industry have been clear that our collective preference is to secure the UK’s ongoing participation in the European Aviation Safety Agency system once the UK withdraws from the European Union.

“However, as a responsible regulator, we continue to make the necessary contingency plans to prepare for the unlikely event that a withdrawal agreement is not ratified.”

In the event of no deal, UK government plans to bypass Brussels and attempt to do bilateral deals with each of the 27 nations of the EU separately.
