You should never let your aircraft registration go outdated. After all, this could result in the grounding of your aircraft, as well as fines and other official trouble. Don’t worry, though, since we make changing aircraft registration very easy for you. Let’s go over some of the processes you might need to do.
Update Your Aircraft Registration
It’s important that your aircraft registration is always reflecting accurate and updated information. This means that you will need to update it whenever something related to it changes, regardless of how tiny or simple it is. Changing aircraft registration isn’t that hard, though. In fact, it’s pretty straightforward. There is a specific form for this called the change of address form, which you can find here on our website. All you need to do is provide some information about yourself and the aircraft in question, including its current registration number, and to provide the new address. It’s that easy. You don’t want to miss out on any information that’s mailed to your old address, so always stay on top of that.
Renewing and Re-Registering Your Aircraft
Now, if you’re intending to fly then your aircraft registration should always be valid. This means that if it expires at some point, it will be good to assume your plane is grounded until you renew your registration. It’s important to remember that you can only renew your registration for as long as it’s still active. If it actually expires, then you will have to go through the process of re-registering it with the Federal Aviation Administration. The re-registration form is meant to restore registration that was left unattended without the need to start from scratch. This will also apply if your registration has remained expired for an extended period of time if, say, the aircraft went through lengthy repairs or was temporarily moved to a different country.
Deleting Your Registration
Another instance in which you will be changing aircraft registration will be when you need to delete it. When would you have to do this? Well, maybe you’re moving abroad and you’re taking the aircraft with you. Maybe you can no longer operate the aircraft, meaning that there’s no need to maintain its registration. Regardless of the specific circumstances, though, deleting the registration is fairly easy. All you need to do is submit the de-registration form and pay the accompanying fee. This will make sure that your aircraft’s registration is deleted from the Federal Aviation Administration registry and that it is no longer associated with you. You will always need to do this before registering your aircraft in a different country.
