The Civil Aviation Directorate of the Republic of Serbia has already taken all necessary steps for the implementation of the European regulations covering the area of pilot licences in the Republic of Serbia. In order to retain the current status of pilot licences, issued by CAD, within the EU Member States it is necessary to conclude an Agreement between the Republic of Serbia and European Union in this area.
The Civil Aviation Directorate has taken the steps in this direction as well, with the view of concluding the Agreement between Republic of Serbia and European Union as soon as possible.
