You must apply for a Certificate of Aircraft Registration from the
Civil Aviation Registry before it may be operated. Do not depend on a bank,
loan company, aircraft dealer, or anyone else to submit the application for
registration. Do it yourself (in the name of the owner, not in the name of
the bank or other mortgage holder).

You can help make sure
your aircraft is properly registered by verifying that the aircraft
description entered on the Aircraft Registration Application and Aircraft
Bill of Sale (or equivalent) is identical to the data inscribed on the
aircraft manufacturer's data plate. The data plate is permanently affixed to
the aircraft fuselage by the manufacturer. This quick and simple check
should help avoid delays in the issuance of the AC Form 8050-3, Certificate
of Aircraft Registration.
Registered in the United States
You should immediately
submit evidence of ownership, an Aircraft Registration Application, and a $5
registration fee to the Federal Aviation Administration, Civil Aviation
Registry, AFS-750, Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center, P.O. Box 25504,
Oklahoma City, OK 73125. Fees required for aircraft registration may be paid
by check or money order made payable to the Treasury of the United States.
A bill of sale form that
meets the FAA's requirements for evidence of ownership is AC Form 8050-2,
Aircraft Bill of Sale, which may be obtained from the nearest FSDO. The form
includes an information and instruction sheet. If a conditional sales
contract is the evidence of ownership, an additional $5 fee is required for
recording. For FAA registration, the bill of sale need not be notarized.
