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.


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.


Actually, he could, if he is using a foreign certificate. I have about five
of them in various states of repair and can use any one of them to fly in
the US.

FAA mandates plastic pilot certificates
By AOPA ePublishing staff

Still hanging onto your paper pilot certificate? You’ll 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.


do you know what the real joke is with all this rubbish.

Australia once had a small credit card sized pilots licence ...well
the australian 'cretins against sane aviation' will only ever call
them a 'flight crew licence' ...anyway.
this was universally loved by pilots all over australia. it was neat.
in fact it is the only competent thing casa has ever done in the last
10 years.

against all input from pilots the cretins got rid of it and introduced
an ICAO compliant A5 sized book of paper pages in plastic wallets.
just so that australia wouldnt look out of place.

so you guys are getting a credit card sized pilots licence. bloody
good!
now we'll be able to ridicule the cretins into introducing our credit
card sized licence again.

gawd our people are stupid. I think the casa gene pool is long overdue
for chlorinating.

Nope. Couple of African ones, couple of European ones. Most are expire
at the moment ( the US is the only place I know of where the licence
doesn't actually have an expiry date)

I gues they couldn't rely on the pilot populace leaving the pub long
enough to renew them!
