Understanding the FAA’s Aircraft Registration Database

What is the point of submitting all those forms and documentation at the time of filing for aircraft registration? Where does all this information go? Well, it goes right to the aircraft registration database.

FAA Aircraft Registration Database

Part of why it’s so important to register your aircraft with the Federal Aviation Administration is to make sure that you get it into the database. This is the FAA’s way of keeping track of all aircraft making use of the United States airspace and ensuring that they are all flying in accordance with the corresponding guidelines and regulations. This database serves a dual purpose, of course, since it serves officials with contact information should any issues related to the aircraft arise at some point. On top of that, it also allows owners and users to potentially consult information related to a particular aircraft. This involves data about previous ownerships and registrations, which is conveniently organized under the FAA’s database.

Register Your Plane

So, first of all, if you want to join the registration database, you will have to submit a registration form to the FAA. Don’t worry, this process is all very simple, mostly involving filling out the form itself along with proof of ownership in order to make your claim over the aircraft official. This initial registration form can be submitted directly to the FAA, but we make it so that you are able to fill it out and submit it through our platform. Not only will this make the submission process a lot easier, but it will also ensure that it goes through the right checkers who will confirm the information on the form is all correct. This way, you’ll avoid potential delays and returns, expediting the process.

Consult the Database

Now, if what you need is to consult the database, then all you’ll need to do is submit the right form to the Federal Aviation Administration. You will find this form readily available here on our website under the “abstract” name. Not only can you fill it out here, but you can also submit it through our platform. Unlike with regular submissions, we make sure yours goes through the right checkers before it’s passed along to the FAA in order to avoid any potential delays. Once you submit the form, it will only be a brief matter of time before you receive your abstract in the format that you requested.

Submit Every FAA Form to FAA Aircraft Registration Database

When it comes to submitting any sort of aircraft registration form or requesting information from the FAA, you will have two options. On one hand, you can file the form directly with the Federal Aviation Administration, but this is likely to take a long time, especially given the way in which you need to submit the forms, and that’s not to mention that you might have your forms returned for small mistakes. On the other hand, you can find and submit all the forms through our platform here at the National Aviation Center.
