Have you got one?

Has your licence number changed?

There was an AIC recently suggesting that the licence numbers *may* change, which of course will cause problems for those of us with an FAA airmans certificate based on our IAA JAR licence.

Just got one today,

The former alpha-numeric (six- digit and one letter) personal reference number has been replaced by a numeric-only personal reference number.
So the number stays the same but they got rid of the letter at the end of it.
Apart from that the cover is plastic and not half as nice as the previous one. But is pocket size :D

You can find ful detail in the document : CHANGES TO AVIATION PERSONNEL LICENCES FOLLOWING INTRODUCTION OF NEW EMPIC COMPUTER SYSTEM.
Reference no: 02/09
Issue date: 25/09/2009
Safety Regulatory Division
Personnel Licencing Advisory Memorandun.

Regards, S.P.

Looks like another trip to the FAA flight standards district office for me ;)

I can count myself lucky my licence is CAA issue! I'll be collecting my FAA certificate in Fort Lauderdale next month.

Hi all,
Once upon a reading of the small print of an application for an FAA license, I noticed, apart from all the usual dire warnings about the penalties for making a false application, a statement that the task of generating the fresh license had been assessed by some nameless Federal office as taking 20 minutes per transaction and that the applicant was to be billed appropriately.$2.
Yep.I nearly fell off my seat.I was expecting the usual rip-off and saw $2.And so it proved.$2 to be allowed to fly air-planes in the great ol' USA.Bargain! Admittedly, that was in 1997 but it's probably not much more.Pity our Feds weren't so efficient or cheap.
regards
Stovepipe
