An Aircraft Abstract Has All the Information You’ve Been Looking For

If you have ever needed to access a full report with complete information about a particular aircraft, then you are probably aware of how useful an aircraft abstract can be. These documents are provided by the Federal Aviation Administration and they include all sorts of information associated with a particular aircraft, which can come in handy in a variety of situations. Here’s a quick guide on what these abstracts are, what they’re for, and how you can get one yourself.

What is an Aircraft Abstract For?

There will be occasions in which you, as an aircraft owner, will need to access certain specific information regarding the airplane’s past registration, previous owners, or even your own ownership over it. If that’s the case, you will need an official source for this information, not only so that it can be reliable in the first place, but so that it can be certified and proven accurate if there is a particular need to do so. Imagine that your aircraft may have, at some point before you owned it, been involved with some questionable activity. An abstract can help you prove the conditions of your ownership and keep you from getting in trouble because of this.

What Information is Included?

So, what exactly is included in an aircraft abstract when you request one from the Federal Aviation Administration? This will have the record of all documents that have been submitted to the Federal Aviation Administration for one particular aircraft. This abstract will only list the information that has been provided to the FAA during the time the airplane in question was registered, which means that there are probably going to be gaps in the information if the registration was left unrenewed at some point or if it changed owners. There might also be gaps in the timeline if the aircraft has been registered in different states or countries. However, the abstract of title is still a very informative record.

How Do You Get an Abstract?

Easy. In order to receive an abstract for a particular aircraft, all you need to do is request one from the Federal Aviation Administration. You can do so directly with them, but that might involve a more complicated process than what you’re probably looking for. Instead, you can do so through our team here at the National Aviation Center. The necessary form is readily available for those who need it. All you need to do is fill it out with some of your contact information and the identifying aircraft data and we’ll revise it to make sure everything is in order. Once that’s done, we’ll submit it directly to the Federal Aviation Administration and you will have your aircraft abstract in no time.
