Is there a way to notify the FAA online of a change of address?
     The FAA's Airmen Services Web site provides this capability to pilots.
     To utilize this online service, you must establish an account with the Airmen Certification Branch. Or, you may download the FAA's Change of Address Notification form (or Click Here), fill out the requested information, sign, fold, and mail it to the FAA.  Aircraft owners are also required to notify the FAA when the address on the aircraft registration has changed.

     The FAA offers a Change of Address Notification for Aircraft Owners that can be downloaded. Whenever you notify the FAA, and your aircraft is based in Wisconsin, you must also notify the Wisconsin Department of Transportation by completing their application and remitting any fees due.

     You can download their Form (DT1556) which is on the Wisconsin Department of Transportation website at

     Be sure to:

     (1) complete and send the DT1556,

     (2) include a copy of the Bill of Sale (is applicable),

     (3) notify them of any address change, and

     (4) notify them if the aircraft has been sold/destroyed/or no longer based in Wisconsin.

     Questions can be directed to 608-266-1861.  Sales and use tax questions can be answered by calling 608-261-7694.  Remember that when a pilot moves and/or the permanent address changes, the FAA must be notified within 30 days; otherwise the pilot may not act as pilot in command.
