The U.K. government plans on staying in the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) post-Brexit.
The EASA sets the standards across Europe and is responsible for safety and maintenance checks.
The plan comes after the U.K. government came under pressure from British & European airlines, as well as the U.S. Federal Aviation Authority. The FAA told Britain that it had to come up with a legal structure for aviation safety soon, which will be subject to checks by U.S. inspectors.
The decision over whether the U.K. will remain in the EASA will form part of the second stage of Brexit negotiations.
