I am choosing the country where to do my initial for the EASA Class 1 medical. The choice is to either do it in the UK (let's ignore Brexit for now) or in Italy. In both countries I would get (if deemed fit) an EASA Class 1.
My question is: to fly and train in Europe, how important is the country of issue? If I pass the medical, I am planning to go to an FTO in the UK.
