Airworthiness Certification Process (AWC)

The FAA requires several basic steps to obtain an Airworthiness Certificate in either the Standard or Special class. The links below are from the FAA Airworthiness Certification page. Let us know how we can help!

Applications for an Airworthiness Certificate can be submitted either of two ways:

  1. Online via the FAA Airworthiness Certification (AWC) Tool
    • AWC is the FAA’s preferred method (be patient – the site can take time to load)
    • AWC Quick Start Guide (PDF)
  2. Paper application, FAA Form 8130-6

Once registered and signed into the FAA AWC site, you can create a New Application or request other Certificates / Permits. Many applications allow you to select an FAA Designee. Follow the steps below to ensure we are linked to the application (click image for a clearer view).
