For Students, Pilots and Vehicles
Student registration - Should be done at the start of any flight training. Student registration allows the use of ultralight flight time to meet sport pilot time requirements, in accordance with FAR 61.52. Click to register as a student.
Pilot registration - EAA maintains pilot registration program for your benefit. Although federal regulations that pertain to ultralights don't require you to register yourself or your vehicle. Also, the simple and less restrictive rules for ultralights were allowed by the FAA on the assumption that industry would self-regulate. When you participate in the registration program, you are helping us to fulfill this commitment to self-regulation. If we fail to self-regulate, the FAA will be forced to do it for us. This program is a member benefit and free of charge to EAA members. Click to register as an ultralight pilot.
Vehicle registration - EAA’s vehicle registration program provides a way to identify your ultralight vehicle to others. Once registered with EAA you will be assigned a registration number that begins with the letter “E” identifying it as registered with EAA. This will help to gain access to airports and shows you are complying with the self regulation concept which FAR Part 103 embraces. This program is a member benefit and free of charge to EAA members.
