Hi, As a Civil Aviation pilot I retired in 1994. By this

Customer Question

Hi, As a Civil Aviation pilot I retired in 1994. By this time I had flyed for 27 years and had around 13000 flying hours in total in USSR and Russia. I never applied for pension as a pilot. Since 1993 I have been living in the UK. Now I am getting a state pension 59 UK pounds a week plus 87 UK pounds pension credit. I've heard there is an ICAO regulation that I can apply for for a pension as a Civil Aviation pilot in any country where I live permanently, which could be much higher that my current pension. Could you please advice me if it is possible to apply for a pension as a retired Civil Aviation pilot . Thank you

Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Hello Nicola,


 


Thank you very much for your letter. No problem, I can wait.


I'd like to add up that I am a British Citizen since 2005. Also one of my former colleague was in the same position with less working (experience) years as a pilot got a pension under the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) law around $3000 a month.


I must admit as a pilot, mostly as a captain, I worked only for Aeroflot and a commercial cargo join stock company "Volga Dnepr - Heavy Lift"


I would be grateful if you could advice me how to apply and tell me what are the chances to succeed. Thank you!
