The UK will withdraw as a member state of the European Union Aviation Safety Agency after a transition period and shift responsibility for aircraft certification and safety regulation to its own Civil Aviation Authority, British Transportation Secretary Grant Shapps said.

A new way to increase costs! What a stupid decision!
To increase which costs?
If the U.K. wants to remain a member of EASA they will certainly have to pay a contribution to do so.
Why would it be a stupid decision if the UKCAA can do it for the same price?
A contribution of e.g. 10% to the costs of EASA is certainly cheaper than doing 100% of the same job alone at the UK CAA.

Certainly ?

I'd like to see the figures that back up your statement.

(I have absolutely no idea one way or the other, to be honest.)

Here is a British study (published already in 2017 by the Royal Aeronautical Society) that concludes that "the UK should remain within EASA."

https://www.aerosociety.com/media/6797/ ... brexit.pdf

It says a.o. that " A single European certification requirement has reduced costs and time for development, certification and production."

"Far from diminishing UK influence in global aviation, the EASA regime has provided a conduit for UK influence on aviation safety and security within Europe and beyond on behalf of the UK passengers flying on airlines around the world; indeed, the UK has been a major driver of ever-closer alignment on regulatory matters across Europe and the negative impacts of its withdrawal would be felt across the continent, to such an extent that EASA would likely be diminished in stature as an organisation."

It seems that dogmatic decisions of the Boris Johnson government are completely stupid.

Europe’s transport chief has warned airlines that they must face up to their obligations to overhaul share-ownership structures to continue qualifying for single-market flying rights after Brexit.

Aer Lingus parent IAG says flights will continue after Brexit despite ongoing questions about the impact of EU airline ownership rules on the Irish carrier.
