    FAA certificates

    If you already hold a FAA 61.75 certificate which has been issued on the basis of a UK issued licence and the FAA 61.75 needs to be reissued due to a reunumbered licence being issued by the UK CAA post September 2012, please see the FAA certificates for UK-issued licences page.

    Please note

    For security and to help prevent fraud the CAA will only verify your licence details directly to other National Aviation Authorities (NAA), Companies and Airlines.

    Any subsequent requests, following changes to your licence, or requests to verify your details to an additional NAA, company or airline must be dealt with separately and will involve a separate charge.

    Please note that no verification process is available for NPPL or LAPL holders, as they are not ICAO compliant.
