If you lose your airman’s certificate, or if it happens to go through the washing machine and it is no longer legible(for those of us who haven’t had a check-ride in awhile and still have a paper certificate), now you can order a replacement certificate on-line at the FAA Civil Registry website. Yes, it will also be one of the new plastic credit-card-like certificates with the embedded security enhancements. And, not only can you apply for a replacement certificate on-line, but you can actually receive temporary authority to operate via e-mail or fax. The Registry offers a number of other on-line services as well. For more information, check out the website at www.registry.faa.gov.
