Deadline Reminder – Expiration of Aircraft Registration Certificates

Notice Number: NOTC2866

This is a reminder about the re-registration of aircraft; the first group of registration certificates will expire on March 31, 2011.   You are encouraged to conduct this re-registration process as soon as possible and not get caught in a backlog of the re-registration process.   Any applications that were received within the original three (3) month window should be processed in a timely manner. The FAA Aircraft Registry anticipated a workload increase and designed a process to help alleviate any delays.   Any applications submitted after the 3 month window closes will be processed as soon as possible, but may not be completed before the certificate expires.   Of course, there is not a violation of the regulations if you simply do not re-register your aircraft. However, in the event you did not complete this process within the prescribed time frame, please use good decision-making skills. Operation of an aircraft with an expired certificate is a violation of the regulations.    To expedite this process, you are encouraged to utilize the on-line process.
