As the summer travel season begins to wind down it is an excellent time for Flight Attendants to review their required documentation. The responsibility of maintaining complete and current documentation such as valid passports and visas belongs to the individual Flight Attendant. This includes the FAA Airmen Certificate. 

While it is not required to carry the FAA Airmen Certificate it may be requested by an FAA official or at certain international locations. Flight Attendants are required to make these cards available within a reasonable time period, upon request. The FAA has determined that a reasonable period of time is fifteen (15) days. Although we are not required to carry the FAA Airmen Certificate, we encourage Flight Attendants to keep it up to date and always know where you have it secured for easy access. Flight Attendants who need to replace their card because it is lost, stolen or you’ve had a name change or if you have a need to update your current mailing address associated with their certificate should visit the FAA Airmen Certificate website.
