Pilots can now open an online account on the FAA's Civil Aviation Registry Web site, which will give them access to change of address notification and other registry services. According to the FAA, this online service is an official alternative to providing required information through the mail. FAR 61.60 requires pilots to notify the FAA of a change in their permanent mailing address within 30 days. The online service follows current privacy act provisions. For more information, see AOPA's subject report and " Pilot Counsel: Change of address."
