Licensing counter service
The licensing counter is currently closed
The counter service for aircraft maintenance licensing is only available by appointment.
We take advantage of the time thus freed to process the requests that reach us by mail. Indeed, we introduced this measure in order to reduce our file processing times as quickly as possible.
In the meantime, it is always possible for you to come to personally deposit your file at the reception of the Federal Public Service. The reception is situated on the ground floor and is open from Monday to Thursday from 7:00 to 17:00 and on Friday from 7:00 to 16:30.
The call center for pilot licenses is contactable every afternoon from 13:30 to 15:00.
The call center for maintenance personnel licenses is contactable every afternoon from 13:30 to 15:00.
Encountering heavy workload, it is not possible for us to give you an exact status of your file. We cannot answer questions like:
- What is the status of my file?
- Did you receive my documents?
- Has my licence has been sent?
If you have questions apart from the status of your file, please refer to hereunder section “ If you have questions “.
We currently have some delay to proceed the licensing demands. It takes about 35 working days for the licences. We will make every effort to process pending requests as quickly as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience.
The Licensing service will be closed from 23 December 2019 to 3 January 2020. We wish you an Happy New-Year.
