Owning an aircraft is both a significant responsibility and a considerable investment. With such a sizable financial commitment at stake, it is not common to enter an airplane security agreement. If you are in the market to purchase an aircraft, the National Aviation Center can help you understand just what goes into an aircraft security agreement.
What is an Airplane Security Agreement?
If you have done a bit of research into aircraft ownership and financing, you probably recognize that it can be a complicated endeavor. The purchase of airplane security is not an uncommon practice, as it serves to leverage an aircraft (or parts of an aircraft) as collateral in the event that a debtor is unable to pay a creditor. While this may seem like a fairly straightforward third-party transaction, you are required to file an aircraft security agreement with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
Again, an aircraft security agreement is somewhat of a commonplace contract, since airplanes can carry significant costs and retain their value well. It is not dissimilar to a home mortgage, and many aviators find themselves entering into airplane security agreements.
So, what is needed to file an aircraft security agreement? You will need to submit a completed agreement/contract with an application for aircraft registration, or another sufficient indicator of ownership. Your agreement should include the following information:
- Your plane’s manufacturer, model designation, serial number, and U.S. registration number
- The signature of the involved debtor
- An accurate conveyance of the security interest
- If signing as a representative of a corporation, the proper signatory title or other proof of authority
