FAA Certificates for EASA Licences
If you have a UK or EASA licence issued after 17 September 2012 with an ‘FAA Certificate’ allowing flight in the US, you must have that Certificate reissued by the FAA by October 2018 in order to retain its validity. This is an FAA requirement. The process is relatively straightforward and does not require a trip to the USA. Please see below for some links to useful information regarding the process. If you are unsure as to the process in your Country, your Aviation Authority will be able to provide you with more guidance.
Please be aware that – in the UK at least – if you are carrying out aerial work (flight instruction, aircraft hire, crop spraying or aerial photography, for example) in an N-registered aircraft you will need specific permission from the UK CAA. If you are outside the UK, you may wish to speak to your Department for Transport or Aviation Authority, who will be able to provide you with detail on any guidelines that apply.
