FAA mandates plastic pilot certificates
By AOPA ePublishing staff

Still hanging onto your paper pilot certificate? Youíll need to
upgrade to a plastic pilot certificate by March 31, 2010. The FAA
released its final rule on Feb. 28, announcing the required switch
to the certificate it deems is more counterfeit resistant. When
the FAA proposed this mandate in 2005, AOPA members overwhelmingly
supported the move to a more secure certificate.

If you are attached to your paper certificate and original
issuance date (the plastic certificate will have a new one), donít
worry. You can keep your paper certificate for nostalgia; you just
canít use it to fly. If you do miss the 2010 deadline, you wonít
have to take a checkride or any exams to get back in the air as
pilot in command. Simply request the plastic certificate.

Temporary, student, and flight instructor certificates are not
impacted by this rule. Those with nonpilot certificates, such as
ground instructors, flight engineers, and mechanics, will have
until March 31, 2013 to change to a plastic certificate.

Pilots can request the plastic certificate through the FAAís Web
site. The cost is $2. However, if you change your pilot
certificate number from your Social Security number, the switch is
free.

Here's the link to request a plastic certificate:

From the Federal register...first paragraph we see:

"Two years after this rule becomes effective, paper pilot certificates
may no longer be used to exercise piloting privileges."

Looks like Larry's comment is correct.

Nope. Only true if you;re reliant upon the FAA for your flying privelages.
( and it's not 'right to fly', either)

Regardless of the "right" wording, are you equivocating? Sounds like
you can't fly in the USA unless you get a plastic license.

Not quite, it sounds like you can no longer fly if your certificate
is issued by the FAA.

Well, to be more precise, if it's the only one you're relying on.

Ok, I see your point. You are right. So this American, who has a FAA
issued pilot certificate, could no longer legally fly in the USA at
some point if I did not get the new plastic certificate. I did not
look at the wording in a legal sense.

BTW, I did get a new plastic certificate a while back to get rid of
the SSN number. That may have cost zero but I may be wrong on that.

Plus they make the certificate numbers way too small.
