Forms for Buying and Selling Aircraft

  • Application for U.S Airworthiness Certificate (Form FAA 8130-6)
    An airworthiness certificate usually is transferred with an airplane when it is sold, but the certificate alone does not fulfill the regulatory requirement. A buyer must ensure that the airworthiness certificate is, as the regulation specifies, current. A Standard Airworthiness Certificate ( FAA Form 8130-6) remains current as long as the airplane is maintained according to regulations and is properly registered, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.
