Keep your FAA Airmen Certificate Card Current
June 8, 2021
Flight Attendants are required to keep their FAA Airmen Certificate Card updated with their current name, address, citizenship, and gender. If you move, you should notify the FAA within thirty (30) days of an address change.
Although your FAA Certificate Card is not a required duty item, as Safety Professionals, it is always a good idea to carry it with you. If requested, Flight Attendants must present their Certificate Card to the FAA, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), or other applicable agencies within fifteen (15) days after the date of request for proof of certification.
To update your address or obtain a replacement Airmen Certificate Card:
- Go to www.faa.gov and click on the “License and Certificate” tab.
- Once on that page, locate the “Airmen Online Services” link and
- Once there, log in to “Replace an Airmen Certificate”
The website contains an address for requesting a replacement by mail, but that process is expected to take anywhere from 4 – 6 weeks, while the online process is expected to take 7-10 days for processing. Additionally, you may contact the FAA for Airmen Certification Information & Assistance at (866) 878-2498.
