Reminder ~ New A&P Certificates Required

 New A&P Certificates Required




Following a new regulation that went into effect several years ago, certified A&P mechanics must upgrade to a new “credit card” –style plastic by MArch 31, 2013 or lose their A&P privileges.

ALL Certificated Airmen (including mechanics, ATC’s, dispatchers, etc) certified under 14CFR65 are required to change from the “paper” certification to “credit card” style by March 31, 2013.

This rule will not apply to temporary paper certificates issued under §65.13 , but all others must apply for a replacement at the FAA’s registry website.

How to Get the New Certificate

The best way to get new replacement certification is to follow the instructions at www.faa.gov/licenses_certificates

The replacement costs $2.00, unless you still have your SSN as your certification number.
