N Number Registration

Here’s How to Take Care of Your Aircraft N Number Registration Application

Why do you have to get your N-number registration? In the United States, in order for you to be able to fly a plane, your aircraft needs to be registered with the Federal Aviation Administration. This is simply the air travel version of registering your car at the DMV. For safety reasons, it’s good for the FAA to be aware and keep track of civilian aircraft flying over American airspace. This will also allow you to back up your ownership over the aircraft in relation to your finances, loans, and mortgages. In short, this isn’t just something that you have to arbitrarily do because of government bureaucracy. It’s useful and helpful. 

Getting Your N Number Registration in Order

As necessary as this process might be, it’s understandable that it might seem somewhat complicated at first. Don’t worry, though, that’s what we’re here for. Let’s go over the details of what you have to do and what the process of N number registration will look like.

Applying for Your Initial Registration

When we are talking about aircraft initial registration, it’s important to remember that the airplane in question can’t have been previously registered. This needs to be an aircraft that is being registered with the Federal Aviation Administration for the first time. If this is indeed the case for you, you will need to fill out the initial registration form you will find on our home page. This means that to get your aircraft’s N number registration, you will have to input all the relevant information about the aircraft, including the manufacturer, the model, and the serial number, as well as your personal information as an applicant. Don’t worry, our site is continuously protected with SSL encryption meant to safeguard your personal information. Once you are done with the information, all you will need to do is pay for the application fee and your registration will have been submitted.

Different Ways to Get Your N Number

There will be certain cases in which you will need to get your N number registration via a different process than the initial one. For example, if you are buying an aircraft from someone else then it’s certainly new to you, sure, but the previous owner probably had it registered already. In these cases, the seller will have to submit a transfer of ownership form that will give you ownership of the aircraft. Whether or not you will have to register the aircraft will depend on the seller’s own standing in regard to their registration. However, if you bought the aircraft from a foreign owner and the plane has never been registered in the United States, then you can still go through the initial registration process.
