What to Do if You Lost Aircraft Registration: Replace Certificates

lost aircraft registration

No one wants to lose any sort of official document given how complicated the aftermath can be, but we at the National Aircraft Registration want to make sure this process isn’t that complex. If you have lost aircraft registration, here’s how to replace it promptly.

What Happened to Your Certificate of Registration?

First of all, we are sorry something happened to your aircraft registration. Losing official documents is always all sorts of inconvenient given the likely bureaucratic procedures you will have to go through in order to recover them. You are probably wondering in what situations you will have to go through the trouble of recovering official copies of documents. Definitely when you lose them, of course, but that’s not the only situation in which you might need to do so. For example, if the hard copy of your certificate is mutilated or damaged in some way, regardless of how minor it is, you will have to replace it with a new one. It’s important that your copy is always in perfect condition for it to be valid, so take care of it.

Replace Your Lost Aircraft Registration

Regardless of whether the certificate is missing or damaged, the process will be the same. Now, what should you do about your lost aircraft registration? You will need to apply for a replacement in order to restore its validity. The good news is that the registration itself still exists within the Canadian aircraft registry database, so there’s no real need for you to go through the whole process of applying for registration all over again. Instead, there is a specific process meant to help those whose registration is still valid easily receive a new copy of their certificate of registration. The process will have a fee, though, but it won’t be as expensive as getting your initial registration, so don’t worry.

What Information Will You Have to Provide?

The thought of having to fill out a form is always enough to stress oneself out, right? Who knows what sorts of information you will have to compile and provide! How long will that even take? Well, don’t worry, because it doesn’t have to be that hard. The replacement form is actually quite brief, so you can be done with it in no time. All you need to do is fill out your contact information and some straightforward specs about the aircraft in question. Then, select what document you are replacing (there are choices beyond the aircraft certificate of registration, so be sure to pick the right one) and declare your standing in regards to the registration. Once you submit this and pay the fee, you will be on your way to replace your lost aircraft registration.
