Pilot / flight crew & maintenance engineers license validation

Pilot License Validation

Pilot / flight crew and aircraft maintenance engineers with licenses from other ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) Contracting States may apply to the DCA (Department of Civil Aviation) of Aruba for validation of a foreign license.

License validation can be valid for up to two (2) years. However, the validity shall not extend beyond the expiration date of the foreign license. License validation is issued within 24 hours and will allow all existing privileges to be exercised while flying or maintaining a P4 registered aircraft.

Under OPS (Operations) 1/ FCL (Flight Crew Licensing) regulation for commercial operators you can do a validation or a conversion of your foreign license and then be issued an Aruban license.

Pilots (flight crew member) wanting to fly a (P4 tail number) Aruban registered aircraft shall either hold a valid Aruban pilot license or a valid Aruban pilot license validation established on their foreign acceptable International Civil Aviation Organization ICAO pilot license.

IXO Aviation will support your pilot license validation application process and if necessary will offer you additional aviation training to fulfill the Civil Aviation of Aruba (DCA) requisites.M
