Aircraft registration is the most important administrative component of your airplane ownership. After all, this will be the official way to recognize the aircraft and your claim over it. Now, this means that should any information relevant to the documentation change, you will have to update it. Here’s a quick guide to the process of changing aircraft registration.
changing aircraft registration
It’s no secret that your aircraft registration always needs to be kept up to date. After all, this document will determine whether or not your aircraft is in rule to set flight. Now, if you’ve ever had to update or alter any form of vehicle registration, you might be aware that it can be reasonably complicated. Not because the process itself is complex, but because bureaucratic applications and procedures can be needlessly convoluted. It’s practically a widely accepted reality, isn’t it? There’s a reason everyone hates having to go to the DMV. Well, we don’t want you to have to put up with those inconveniences, which is why we’ve made changing aircraft registration easier than ever.
Change Your Address
Your airplane, just like your car, is registered to your own address. This makes it easier to reach out to you should any concerns regarding your registration pop up or if there is an issue related to your aircraft. When you first registered the aircraft, you submitted your address as part of the application. So, if you move at some point, you will have to make sure that your registration reflects this change. The good news is that this process is anything but complicated. There is a specific form intended for updating the address on your registration, which you will find readily available here on our menu. All you need to do is fill out with some information about yourself and the aircraft, including the new address, and submit it through our platform.
Change the Ownership
Now, ownership changes are going to be a little more complicated, but only because you’re altering the registration more radically. This process will be relevant in three different situations: you’re adding an owner, you’re removing an owner, or you’re changing ownership altogether. The transfer/exchange form will come in useful in any of these circumstances, so be sure to submit it accordingly. Maybe you’re getting married and would like joint ownership over the aircraft, or perhaps it’s the other way around; you’re getting divorced and one of you is keeping the airplane. Either way, this form will be very important at the time of changing aircraft registration to reflect any sort of change of ownership.
