Breaking Down the FAA’s Three-Year Life-Limit Rule

On July 20th, the FAA filed its final ruling on "Re-Registration and Renewal of Aircraft Registration." This new rule will impact the entire private aircraft industry and confusion abounds. This rule will terminate the registration of all aircraft registered before October 1, 2010, and will require the re-registration of each aircraft in order to retain U.S. civil aircraft status. These amendments establish a system for a 3-year expiration and renewal of registration every three years for all aircraft issued registration certificates on or after October 1, 2010.

The database compiled from an estimated hundreds of thousands of newly registered aircraft will be used by the FAA to determine ownership in response to an overdue flight or report of a downed aircraft. Law enforcement and other government agencies use the database for their own purposes.
