For all FAA information, from pilots and aircraft to airports and spaceports, we provide procedures and tools to help you apply for, receive, and maintain FAA licenses and certificates.

The NEW Small UAS Rule (Part 107), including all pilot and operating rules, is in effect as of 12:01 a.m. EDT on August 29, 2016.

Note: The Orlando FSDO is NOT accepting appointments at this time for Remote Pilot Certificates.

For expediency, Orlando Flight Standards District Office recommends contacting an FAA designee (DPE) for the following services:

  1. CFI Renewals based on Activity, FIRC or FAA WINGS refer to a DPE. CFI Renewals based on "Duties and Responsibilities" must schedule an appointment with an FAA Inspector at a FSDO.
    The following are examples of renewals based on Duties and Responsibilities:
    • Company Check Pilot
    • Company Check Airman
    • Chief Flight Instructor
    • Military Instructor
  2. Private Pilot Certificate Based on Foreign Certificate
    An FAA certificate issued on the basis of your foreign license is now referred to a DPE.
    Verification of Authenticity of a Foreign License/Medical (FAA Letter of Authenticity)
  3. Military Competency
  4. SIC type rating applications
  5. SOE restriction removals
  6. Restricted ATP limitation removal
  7. Student pilot certificates (seeking Private or Sport privileges)
  8. Ground Instructor applications (Basic, Advanced and Instrument)
