When Will You Have to Go Through the Reregister Airplane Application?

Getting the initial registration for your aircraft is going to be the first step. The second step will be to keep it all in order. Now, what this will ultimately entail are a variety of different processes, each of which will address a different component of the overall documentation. For example, in cases of deleted or expired documentation, you will have to go through the reregister airplane process.

When to Reregister Airplane Documentation

Your airplane documentation is the official certification that your aircraft is allowed to operate in the United States, which is why it’s very important to make sure that it’s always valid. If not, you might have to ground your airplane until you sort that out. If your registration has either been deleted or expired, for example, you will need to file a form for re-registration.

You De-Registered Your Aircraft Registration

There are many reasons why one would potentially file for the de-registration of an aircraft. You might be moving abroad and need to delete the American registration before you register the aircraft in a different country. Maybe you know that you won’t be using the plane for a few years so you don’t see the point of keeping the plane registered in the meantime. Regardless of the circumstances, if you went through the deregistration process and are now in need to get the registration back up, then you will have to go through the reregistration process. This is far from a complicated process, although you will have to submit the corresponding form properly. You will find the reinstatement form here on our website, ready for you to fill out and submit to the Federal Aviation Administration. Don’t worry, we’ll ensure it’s properly filled out before passing it to the FAA.

Your Plane Registration Expired

Another situation in which you might need to reregister your aircraft will be in the case that your registration expired before you were able to apply for renewal, you need to keep in mind that you can’t go through the renewal process anymore. Instead, you will have to file for its reregistration. If your registration has expired, this will help you bring it back and make it valid again. So, if for any reason your registration did expire, this will be the way to go. You will also find this form here on our website for you to directly submit it to the Federal Aviation Administration. Remember that you can’t use your aircraft with an expired registration, so the sooner that you submit this to the FAA, the sooner you’ll be able to fly again.
