FAA Airman Certificates - Identification Requirements

USA licence exampleThe holder of an FAA Airman Certificate would normally be required to travel to an FAA Flight Standards District Office in the United States to comply with identification requirements.

Following the introduction of harmonised European pilot licences, pilots holding a UK 'National' or EASA licence, who also hold an 'FAA Airman Certificate', allowing them to fly in the United States, are required to have the certificate reissued with the UK CAA to retain its validity. This is an FAA requirement, following format changes to European licences.

This arrangement will avoid the need for pilots to travel to the US for verification of identity, as the Federal Aviation Administration has now confirmed that pilots can have the certificate reissued outside the United States. The UK Civil Aviation Authority is therefore advising affected pilots to contact its licensing service to arrange the re-issue.

Full details are available on the UK CAA website.
