FAA requires pilots to use plastic certificates
I just read on AOPA.org tonight that the FAA on Feb 28 released a rule requiring pilots to use the newer plastic certificates (versus the old paper ones). So if you haven’t requested one, well, now would be a good time to do so. Although, you might want to wait a couple weeks as the FAA is working hard to complete the orders for the “English Proficiency” endorsements that I discussed earlier this week. Replacement certificates usually cost $2 but if you are removing your social security number from your license the cost is free.
Here are some links to learn more about this new rule:
