Have you ever needed to confirm past data about your aircraft? Do you ever wish you had access to old documents you haven’t thought of in years? That’s what a plane abstract is for.
What is a Plane Abstract?
Officially known as an airplane abstract of title, this document serves as a compilation of all relevant information and documentation related to a specific aircraft. Essentially, everything that has been submitted to the Federal Aviation Administration is then collected by the Civil Aviation agency. All aircraft, independently from whether or not they have changed owners at some point, have a unique identifying number. Officially, this is known as an N-number, but it is casually referred to as a tail number because of its placement on the actual airplane. An airplane abstract can actually be quite useful when it comes to confirming information about the aircraft, as well as consulting its financial standing. These can also help prospective buyers cross-check information about the aircraft they’re purchasing.
Finding the Information You Need
Abstracts include a lot of information about the aircraft in question, for they compile all readily available data that has previously filed under the particular N-number with the Federal Aviation Administration. This includes documents from all previous owners, of course, including a record of the different changes in ownership that have occurred. This will also involve documents such as different claims of lien, mortgage fulfilments, and loan information. For example, if you are a prospective buyer looking to purchase the aircraft, an abstract will help you confirm that the airplane is free of potential liens and loans that could be unknowingly passed on to you. And, if you are an owner, you can crosscheck your own information or provide proof of ownership or mortgage fulfillment with an aircraft abstract.
Requesting an Abstract
Requesting your airplane abstract is very straightforward. If your aircraft is properly registered with the Federal Aviation Administration, as it should be, you will simply need to submit the corresponding form to the FAA. You will find the form readily available here on our website, where you will not only be able to fill it out but also submit it. After all, we want to make the process as easy as possible for you. Once you submit the forms, our checkers will even make sure that everything is ready to be passed along to the FAA so that you don’t experience any delays or returns. Getting an abstract of title has never been easier.
Submit All Your Aviation Forms
Submitting forms to government agencies is always more complicated than it should be. Between extensive requirements and complicated forms, it’s surprising anyone ever gets any form processed promptly at all. Because of this, it’s important to find easy and convenient ways to fill out and submit forms that don’t involve dealing directly with the government. That is why we at the National Aviation Center make it easier for you to find and submit all your forms, including those to request abstracts.
