    Any one that hold a faa cetrtificate

    Some of you may know about this. If you still have a paper FAA CERTIFICATE it will be expired as of March 13 2013. You will need to replace it with the plastic certificate before March 13 2013.

    It's my understanding a pilots license never really expires.

    Thanks, I looked this up and read what you are talking about. I got the form all filled out and ready to mail, $2 I guess is fair in todays economy!

    I was planning on just going up, my wife and i and an instructor, nothing really formal like a BFR. I haven't been up in several/many years (early 90s), and my wife would actually like to see me get back in to flying, so I suggested this as an alternative to actually getting a physical and BFR, just to try it out again.
    Then my wife needed some surgery done which I think will push as back until spring, no big deal.
    But I am going to go ahead and get the plastic license so I don't have that hudle to cross later on. I also read about that medx card or whatever that is called.

    The back in 2009 the FAA required any one that had a paper certificate needed to replace it with the new plastic certificate by March of 2011 to be able to continue using your flying prevlages. And mechanic by March 2013
