Replacing airman certificate online
Votes
Open

I got my PPL in 1993.  Haven’t flown since, but getting back into it.  I currently have a paper certificate, am aware I need a plastic one.  When I go to get a replacement on the faa website it says it’s not available for online renewal, seal # 218.  Any ideas has to get a replacement?

Thanks for the response.  I can log into that site, fill out my information and get to the page where you order a replacement certificate but the submit button is grayed out and it states the certificate is not available for renewal online.

Then there's a problem you can't fix on line.  You'll have to call them to sort it out.  See phone number here:

Glad to hear it.  Sometimes the FAA really is here to help.
