Report a Deceased Airmen

The following are the procedures to report a deceased airman:

If the airman is deceased, please mail a signed letter to the address listed below or email, indicating the deceased airman's full name and date of birth or certificate number. This information is required to ensure the correct changes are made to our airman records and to avoid inadvertent removal of a name and address from the Airman Directory, which is used to disseminate vital safety information. Please note that the deceased airman may continue to receive FAA mailings and publications for a few months after the airman's record is updated, but these mailings will eventually stop.

You can mail your letter to:

Federal Aviation Administration
Airmen Certification Branch
P.O. Box 25082
Oklahoma City, OK 73125-0082
