EAA Provides Simple Guide for Aircraft Re-Registration
October 13, 2010 — The FAA notice of "Expiration of Aircraft Registration" forms have started to arrive in mailboxes – EAA has received a batch for several of its 200-some museum aircraft – and to help guide aircraft owners through the process, EAA has developed a simple guide based on a sample re-registration form. Feedback we’ve received thus far has reinforced our experience that the re-registration process can be accomplished in as little as 5-10 minutes. If you own an airplane, you will have to re-register it at some point over the next three years beginning this November 1. It’s being done so the FAA can get an accurate count of aircraft in the United States.
It is very important that aircraft owners follow through and re-register because failing to do so could render your aircraft no longer usable. Also, contrary to some rumored reports, this is not an online process only; although FAA encourages online re-registration, you can do it via postal mail if requested. There’s also a new re-registration thread on Oshkosh365. If you have any questions about the process, EAA Information Services will be glad to walk you through it at no charge at 888-322-4636.
