Aircraft Registration

We want to register a Cessna 172RG that was previously on the German register. How do we go about that?


ANSWER: First the FAA must have a record of the aircraft being de-registered from Germany. The German authorities must communicate to the FAA in a letter or fax that the aircraft has been deregistered.

Once the FAA has this information, you can make application for U.S. registration. You will be required to show proof of ownership (bill of sale) with your application.

You can find ownership requirements and procedures for registering aircraft on this website.
