Say cheese! The CAA wants your selfie

CAA selfie

The UK CAA has simplified – yes, you read that correctly – simplified how you can certify certain documents for personnel licensing.

Certified documents are required, for instance, when you change address or want to book a medical through the CAA’s Cellma portal.

The changes are very welcome and allow for:

  • The option to provide a photo of yourself holding your ID (a ‘selfie’) as an alternative to obtaining a certified copy
  • The ability for non-aviation professionals to certify most licences and other documents in addition to ID
  • An expanded list of accepted professions for certifying documents.

Full details, including the updated list of recognised professionals, can be found on the CAA website here.
