  • for airplane and helicopter pilots: form DAC-LIC 114-2;
  • for sailplane and balloon pilots: form DAC-LIC 114-3.

Before issuing a Luxembourg licence, the DAC will contact the authority that issued the foreign licence to confirm its authenticity.

Examiner's certificates are automatically transferred, except for "Senior Examiner" certificates.

Transfer of a licence from Luxembourg to another EASA Member State
