Student Pilot

Certification Details


I will need to verify your identity prior to issuing the new Student Pilot Certificate. Normally this is accomplished by having you email me a photocopy of your driver’s license or passport in color.

Both sides of the DL need to be sent. If the picture doesn’t look like you due to growing a beard, shaving off a beard, completely different hairstyle, fuzzy picture, etc., I will probably need something more accurate so be prepared to have a new picture taken if it comes to that.


Submit your application in IACRA. You will not sign the application until I verify your identity. After you sign, I can then process the application and issue the certificate. Make sure you have your username and password for IACRA when we do the face-to-face meeting either in person or on FaceTime, Zoom, etc. You will be need these to sign your application once I have verified your identity in IACRA. If you need assistance filling out your application, call me, I can help walk you through it.


Have your FTN available.

Face to Face Contact:

The final step is to actually make contact with you to validate your identity. I normally do this with FaceTime however, any means available to you is acceptable. I also have a Zoom account that works well.

I highly recommend contacting me as early as possible to discuss exactly what is needed so the process moves forward efficiently and effectively.


I’m sure you will still have questions, so please do not hesitate to contact me at any time for clarification!
