Aircraft Reinstatement and Renewal, Know the Difference

We all know how important it is to maintain our aircraft registration up to date and in order. After all, that’s the document that gives your aircraft a go in terms of being able to fly in accordance with the rules and regulations. That is why it’s good to stay on top of the renewal date of your registration, as well as the potential need for aircraft reinstatement. Here, we discuss both applications and what you should know about them.

Keep your Registration From Expiring

It’s very important for you to keep your aircraft registration up and running in order for your airplane to stay up and flying. This means paying attention to the expiration date and staying on top of the renewal process. Let’s take a look at this so that you’re ready to take care of it when the time comes. 

Aircraft Renewal

So, if your aircraft registration is close to expiring, you’ll probably want to get started on the renewal process, which mostly consists of a form. First, check your registration for its expiration date. After all, it’s important that you don’t risk yourself by using your plane with an expired registration, since this can result in monetary penalties and even the forced grounding of your aircraft. Because of this, it’s always good to set up reminders in regards to the expiration and renewal of your registration to avoid the possibility of flying with no valid documentation. It’s also good to remember that you can only renew your registration if it hasn’t expired yet. Anything past that, you will have to reinstate your registration with the Federal Aviation Administration.

Now, if your registration did expire before you could submit the renewal application, you will have to go through a different process to reactivate it. This is the reinstatement process, which is fairly similar but with a few key differences. It will also involve a form, but the application fee will be slightly more expensive. Overall, your registration expiring doesn’t have to be the end of the world. After all, you will find everything you need in order to reinstate it here on our website in case you forgot to submit the renewal form before the expiration date. You will always be able to count on the National Aviation Center to find, fill out, and submit the aircraft documentation forms you might need.
