Registering a new aircraft:

To register your plane in the amateur-built or Light Sport experimental category, first, see the Amateur Built Aircraft Reference Page, from the FAA. This page gives a lot of guidance, and links to required forms. You should also consult Advisory Circular 20-27G, and FAA Order 8130.2J - Airworthiness Certification of Aircraft and Related Products.

The basic steps of placing your plane into the experimental category are:

(1) Aircraft Registration: This is done, by submitting the following forms to the FAA Aircraft Registration Branch (AFS-750):

When the registration has been approved, the FAA will send you a 8050-3 (Certificate Of Aircraft Registration).

(2) Prepare the plane for inspection:

(3) Inspection: Have the plane inspected, so an airworthiness certificate can be issued. This involves getting an FAA inspector or a Designated Airworthiness Representative (DAR) to inspect your plane. The following forms are submitted to your local FSDO:

If you use a DAR, these forms would be submitted to the FAA after the inspection.

(4) Repairman Certificate: If you are registering your plane as an amateur built, and if you built more than 51% of the plane, and have documentation to prove it, you can submit a form 8610-2 to your local FSDO. It's been my experience that this is done in person, so that the FAA can verify your documentation. If you are registering your plane as a Light Sport Plane, then you must complete one of the Sport Pilot repairman courses to obtain your repairman certificate.

Buying/Selling an aircraft:

If you have purchased a plane that is already registered, and already has an airworthiness certificate, the seller will fill out the back of the the aircraft registration certificate (8050-3), and mail it to the FAA. You, as the buyer, must mail the following to the FAA:

Death of an Owner:

If your aircraft is registered to you and a spouse, and the spouse dies, submit the following to the FAA to remove the deceased person's name from the registration:

Converting an S-LSA to E-LSA:

If you are the owner of an S-LSA aircraft, and wish to change it to an E-LSA (in accordance with 14 CFR 21.191(i)(3)), the following steps must be completed:
