The FAA reminds airframe and powerplant mechanics to exchange their paper certificates for plastic ones before March 31, 2013. Paper certificates will expire on that date and holders will not be able to exercise their privileges thereafter. This expiration date also applies to all certificates issued under 14 CFR Parts 63 and 65. All paper pilot certificates expired on March 31, 2010 and should have been replaced prior to that date.
FAA also reminds certificate holders there is a $2 charge to replace a certificate unless the certificate number has not been changed from the holder’s social security number (SSN). There is no charge to reissue certificates to remove the SSN.
