Change of Address for Airmen and Aircraft

Airman

When a pilot moves and/or the permanent address changes, the FAA must be notified within 30 days of the move; otherwise the pilot may not act as pilot in command.

Complying with the regulation is easy.

You may update your address with the FAA online or print the FAA's Change of Address Notification form, fill out the requested information, sign, fold, and mail it to the FAA.

If you prefer, you may send the FAA a letter that includes:

  • A request to change the address on record
  • Date of birth
  • Social security number and/or airman certificate number
  • New address
  • Signature of airman

The FAA does not reply to these requests; it only changes your record. You may request a new pilot certificate that reflects your new address. A fee of $2 per certificate is required, payable by check or money order to the U.S. Treasury.

Send the letter to:

Federal Aviation Administration
Airman Certification Branch AFS-760
Post Office 25082
Oklahoma City, OK 73125

If the new address is a post office box, general delivery, rural route, or star route, the pilot must submit a map or detailed directions to the residence.

Aircraft Owners

Once the FAA has received your change of address, you will not receive a new pilot certificate, as your certificate with the old address remains valid. If you desire, you may request a new pilot certificate that reflects your new address. A fee of $2 per certificate is required, payable by check or money order to the U.S. Treasury. If your request for a new certificate is made online, you may pay the fee electronically. 

Aircraft owners may complete FAA Form 8050-1, Aircraft Registration Application. These forms are available at your local Flight Standards District Office, or by calling AOPA at 1-800-872-2672.

Alternately, you may change the address on your aircraft registration certificate online.
