Fly your general aviation aircraft internationally? Make sure there are no hiccups as you head into the new year by ordering your 2010 customs decal early.
The decals are available online through the Customs and Border Protection’s Decal and Transponder Online Procurement System. In previous years, customs would automatically mail a paper application form, but this year, the agency will mail applications only to those who request one. To request a paper application, call 317/298-1245, and select option No. 3, or send an e-mail.
“In the past, pilots have experienced delays receiving their customs decal at the end of the year,” said Brittney Miculka, AOPA manager of security. “AOPA encourages pilots who know they will be making international flights to order the decal as early as possible.”
According to customs, pilots should receive their decal within four to six weeks of submitting the application.
For tips on international flights to Canada, Mexico, and the Bahamas, or flights to Alaska, see AOPA’s International Flying online resource section.
