If your experience has been gained outside an EASA 145 Maintenance Organisation then you will be
unable to proceed with your application at this present time. If you require more information or guidance on what to do
next please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Category/Sub-Category holds the same restrictions.

The recommendation document will need to be completed by a Quality Manager or the immediate senior person within the
Quality Department of your current employer, or the organisation where the experience is gained.
NB: If you are applying for a change of name and or nationality you will be required to supply
evidence in support of your request, e.g. change of name deed poll/marriage certificate / valid passport.
The above service will also incur a Rolling Renewal fee. To calculate this fee you will need to have the expiry date
of your current Licence to hand when completing the online application form. The expiry date is normally found on page

If you are applying for any other additional services the appropriate fee will also apply.
An additional fee will be payable if you wish your documents to be returned by secure courier.
