VOLUME 5  AIRMAN CERTIFICATION

CHAPTER 5  Title 14 CFR PART 65—AIRMEN OTHER THAN FLIGHT CREWMEMBERS

Section 2  Certificate Airframe and/or Powerplant Mechanic/Added Rating

5-1131    PROGRAM TRACKING AND REPORTING SUBSYSTEM (PTRS) ACTIVITY CODES.

A.    Maintenance: 3501, 3508.

B.    Avionics: 5501, 5508.

5-1132    OBJECTIVE. This section provides guidance for certificating applicants for mechanic certificates and ratings. All inspectors (Airworthiness or Avionics) who review these documents must hold a mechanic certificate with both an Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) rating. Aviation safety technicians (AST) who review these documents must hold a mechanic certificate with either an airframe or powerplant rating; however, review by an authorized AST is limited to the rating that he or she holds.

5-1133    JOINT SERVICES AVIATION MAINTENANCE TECHNICIAN CERTIFICATION COUNCIL (JSAMTCC) A&P CERTIFICATION PROGRAM.

A.    Military Certification. A recent Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)/JSAMTCC plan provides for military applicant certification integrity by completely specifying the applicant’s military training and experience in a level of detail that exceeds the minimum standards set forth in Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 65, § 65.77(b) for Aviation Maintenance Technician Schools (AMTS). Authorized persons in the applicant’s branch of service must certify this training and/or experience and record it on the joint service Form CG-G-EAE-2, FAA Certification Performance of Job Tasks (see Figure 5-136). The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) has used this form to certify eligibility for A&P certification for many years, and the Department of Defense (DOD) has now adopted it as a standard form for personnel certification.

B.    Eligibility. The appropriate office in each of the joint services will then use the data on Form CG‑G‑EAE‑2 to issue Form CG-G-EAE-4, Certificate of Eligibility (see Figure 5-137), to each qualifying applicant. The applicant may then present the completed Certificate of Eligibility and the FAA Certification Performance of Job Tasks form to a Flight Standards District Office (FSDO) as evidence that he/she qualifies for testing authorization under § 65.77. This certificate will serve the same qualification function as a Certificate of Completion or Graduation from a 14 CFR part 147 AMTS.

C.    Advisory Body. The Aircraft Maintenance Division (AFS-300) formally recognizes the JSAMTCC as the functional advisory body to each respective U.S. Military Service’s Aviation Maintenance Division and the FAA.

1)    The military services and JSAMTCC remain primarily responsible for the integrity of the program within the referenced JSAMTCC Policy and Procedures Manual (PPM).
2)    The JSAMTCC developed the PPM in cooperation with AFS-300 to ensure the contained procedures are well defined and adhered to by all branches of service.
3)    Changes to the JSAMTCC PPM are subject to acceptance by the Manager of AFS-300, and oversight of the program shall be maintained at that level.
4)    Military applicants that have not completed the JSAMTCC program may still be evaluated for authorization to take the mechanic knowledge test based on documented experience and military occupational specialty (MOS), Air Force Specialty Code (AFSC), or Navy Enlisted Code (NEC) codes, as authorized in § 65.77. However, when evaluating military experience, aviation safety inspectors (ASI) and ASTs are not to accept MOSs, AFSCs, or NECs “carte blanche” as qualifications to accepting experience of § 65.77. Even though the MOSs suggest authorization, the applicant must have verifiable experience in 50 percent of the subject areas listed for the rating sought (refer to part 147 appendices B, C, and D) in order to be eligible.

5-1134    ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS. Applicants for a mechanic certificate must meet the requirements of part 65 subparts A and D. (For the certification of foreign applicants physically located outside the United States as per § 65.3, see Volume 5, Chapter 5, Section 3, Certificate Foreign Applicants Located Outside the United States for Part 65 Mechanic Certificates/Ratings).

A.    Age Restrictions. An applicant under 18 years of age may take the tests, but do not issue a mechanic certificate until the applicant’s 18th birthday.

B.    Language Requirements. All applicants must be able to read, write, speak, and understand English. Refer to the current edition of Advisory Circular (AC) 60-28, English Language Skill Standards Required by 14 CFR parts 61, 63, and 65, which states for all certification testing, the applicant needs to read a section of a technical manual, and then write and explain his/her interpretation of the reading. (An appropriate technical manual in this sense means an Airplane Flight Manual (AFM), maintenance manual, or other publication, as appropriate for the certificate or rating sought.)

C.    Testing Periods. Once the tests have begun, applicants must pass all the required tests within a 24‑month period.

5-1135    EXPERIENCE REQUIREMENTS. Section 65.77 requires the applicant to have documented practical experience in maintaining airframes and/or powerplants. At least 18 months of practical experience appropriate to the rating requested is required. For a certificate with both ratings, the requirement is at least 30 months of experience concurrently performing the duties appropriate to both ratings. If the applicant has not met the required 30 months concurrently performing the duties appropriate to both ratings, calculate each rating separately using the 18-month requirement for each.

NOTE:  Applying for ratings separately will result in no less than 36 months total requirement for both ratings.

A.    Practical Experience. The practical experience must provide the applicant with basic knowledge of and skills in the procedures, practices, materials, tools, machine tools, and equipment used in aircraft construction, alteration, maintenance, and inspection.

B.    Evaluating Military Experience. With exception to the JSAMTCC A&P certification program experience gained from the military, work as an airframe or powerplant mechanic, or work on an experimental, amateur-built aircraft will receive evaluations on its own merits to determine whether it fulfills the experience requirements. When evaluating military experience, ASIs and ASTs are not to accept MOSs, AFSCs, or NECs “carte blanche” as qualifications to experience as per § 65.77. Even if the MOS suggests authorization for the airframe, powerplant, or both A&P certificates, the inspector will only endorse FAA Form 8610-2, Airman Certificate and/or Rating Application, after ensuring, by a thorough interview and detailed review of records, that the person qualifies under § 65.77.

C.    Expectations. There is no expectation that an applicant be highly proficient in overhauls, major repairs, or major alterations in the minimum 18 months of experience.

D.    Powerplant Tests. Powerplant tests will include questions and projects on propellers that the applicant must successfully complete regardless of his or her experience.

E.    Part-Time Practical Experience. During the evaluation of part-time practical aviation maintenance experience, the applicant must document an equivalent of 18 months for each rating individually, or 30 months of experience for both ratings. This is based on a standard work-week that has 8 hours per day for 5 days per week, or a 40 hour work-week, or a total of approximately 160 hours per month. The time is cumulative, but the days, weeks, and months are not required to be consecutive. The practical experience must be documented.

F.    Foreign Applicants. For foreign applicants located in the United States, all of the requirements for a citizen of the United States apply. This includes applicants who come to the United States just to take the mechanic test. For those located outside the United States, see Volume 5, Chapter 5, Section 3. The following are types of documents that will be acceptable to establish the required record of time and experience:

1)    A detailed original statement from a Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) of the country in which he/she gained the experience.
2)    A detailed statement from an advisor of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) that will validate the applicant’s experience.
3)    If the CAA refuses to provide this information, the inspector will take appropriate action to determine that the experience is valid.

NOTE:  “Appropriate action” is whatever the inspector deems appropriate to determine that the experience is valid (e.g., review supporting documentation presented to satisfy authorization) without expending an excessive amount of time or resources on behalf of the applicant.

4)    Foreign military experience is acceptable experience towards authorization to take the knowledge test based on the context of § 65.77. The applicant must present verifiable documentation from the foreign military or government substantiating the military work experience. Review the current editions of AC 65-2, Airframe and Powerplant Mechanics Certification Guide, and AC 65-30, Overview of the Aviation Maintenance Profession, for guidance.

NOTE:  If the applicant shows only foreign military work experience on aircraft that are not manufactured to U.S. standards, that is not an issue; the experience still has to meet the requirements of § 65.77.

G.    Programs without Approval. Applicants who have not graduated from an FAA-approved AMTS or JSAMTCC A&P certification program must present documents from an employer, coworker, or other sources satisfactory to the Administrator to establish the required record of time and experience.

1)    Applicants will document a proportionate amount of experience directly applicable to the certificate and ratings sought. The applicant must have verifiable experience in 50 percent of the subject areas listed for the rating sought (refer to part 147 appendices B, C, and D) in order to be eligible.
2)    The FAA inspector must evaluate the documents submitted to determine the applicants’ eligibility for a test authorization.
3)    There is no expiration for this eligibility.

H.    Applications Based on Military Experience. Applicants who have not graduated from a FAA‑approved AMTS or JSAMTCC A&P certification program and are applying based on military experience must prove that their military aviation experience, gained in 50 percent of subject areas, meets the requirements of part 147.

1)    To help speed the review process, the applicant may supply the following documentation to the FAA:
a)    A valid and positive form of picture identification, such as a U.S. driver’s license, passport, or military identification.
b)    A properly completed DD Form 214, Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty, which lists the total time in service and the MOS codes assigned to the applicant. (For current MOS, AFSC, or NEC codes, see Figure 5-135, Military Operational Specialty Codes.)
c)    A letter from the applicant’s executive officer, maintenance officer, or classification officer that certifies the applicant’s length of military service, the amount of time the applicant worked in each MOS, the make and model of aircraft and/or engine on which the applicant acquired the practical experience, and where he/she obtained the experience.
d)    Training records showing the type of aviation schools the applicant attended and/or a record of on-the-job training (OJT). Active duty military, selective guard, and reserve members are eligible for a transcript.
2)    Time spent in training or in an MOS, AFSC, or NEC for supervision and/or inspection does not count toward the 18 or 30 months of practical experience required in § 65.77. Only actual hands-on experience is acceptable.
3)    The JSAMTCC A&P certification program permits military applicants to receive authorization to take the A&P Knowledge Test upon presentation of a military Certificate of Eligibility (see Figure 5-137) and FAA Certification Performance of Job Tasks form (see Figure 5-136).
Indicates new/changed information.
4)    As required by the JSAMTCC A&P certification program process, the applicable branch of service will provide military technicians with an individual FAA Certification Performance of Job Tasks. Upon the completion of the program and validation of all signed tasks, military technicians will issue an official Certificate of Eligibility by the participant’s branch of service along with a signed copy of the FAA Certification Performance of Job Tasks.
5)    Sample copies of the FAA Certification and Performance of Job Task and the Certificate of Eligibility are in Figures 5-136 and 5-137, respectively. On the certificate, the seal affixed in the lower-right corner is gold in color, and it carries a raised, embossed stamp from the applicant’s training organization.
6)    The military experience must be directly applicable to the certificate and ratings sought.
7)    There is no expiration for this eligibility.
8)    Advise applicants that the authorization to test is only valid for testing by Designated Mechanic Examiners (DME) exercising privileges within the geographic area served by the FSDO/International Field Office (IFO) granting the authorization. Additional FAA approval is necessary if the applicant wishes to test with a DME in another district. The DME must gain permission from their FSDO/IFO by any written means to conduct a test for an applicant authorized in block V from an inspector from another geographical location.

5-1136    ORAL AND PRACTICAL SKILL TEST PREREQUISITES. Applicants for a mechanic certificate and/or added rating(s) must meet the applicable knowledge and skill test requirements of § 65.79.

A.    Test Reports. Applicants for the oral and practical tests must present a valid airman test report (with raised, embossed seal) from a computer test center to show proof of successful completion of all sections of the knowledge test. The appropriate knowledge tests are the Aviation Mechanic General (AMG) Aviation Mechanic Airframe (AMA), and Aviation Mechanic Powerplant (AMP), depending on the rating sought. Section 65.71(a)(3) and (b) requires the passage of all of the prescribed tests, which include the knowledge, oral, and practical skill tests, within a 24-month period.

1)    Under the Pilot’s Bill of Rights (PBR), applications for airman certificates, ratings, or inspection authorizations involve FAA investigations of an individual’s qualifications to hold the airman certificate, rating, or inspection authorization for which the individual has applied. Because such investigations are not for the purpose of determining whether a violation exists, the inspector does not issue a Letter of Investigation (LOI), and therefore only some of the written notifications under the PBR apply. Any individual who applies for an airman certificate, rating, or inspection authorization must receive and acknowledge receipt of the written notification of investigation at the time of the application (see Figure 5-137G, Sample Written Notification to an Airman Applicant). The signed acknowledgment of receipt of the written notification must be retained with the individual’s application.
2)    Graduates of an approved part 147 AMTS must complete two originals of FAA Form 8610-2 when applying for oral and practical tests.
3)    Individuals applying based on civilian or military experience must present two originals of FAA Form 8610-2 at the Flight Standards Field Office (FSFO). Complete sections I, II, and III. The applicant must sign and date section IV. An Airworthiness ASI who holds a mechanic certificate with an A&P must sign and date section V.

B.    Part 147 Certificated Students. Under § 65.80, when an AMTS student certificated under part 147 shows an FAA inspector that he/she has made satisfactory progress at the school and is prepared to take the oral and practical tests prescribed by § 65.79, that student may take those tests during the final subjects of his/her training.

1)    The AMTS must show that a student is in the final phase of training, has made satisfactory progress, and is ready for the test. The authorized school official will complete section IIE(1) and (2) of FAA Form 8610-2 before administering the oral and practical tests. The reviewing ASI in the district office will fill out section IIF(1) through (4), ensuring that the expiration date is not later than the anticipated graduation date as shown in section IID(4).
2)    In completing FAA Form 8610-2, the student will show the school’s name and location, school certificate number, the student’s curriculum, and the expected graduation date.
3)    After completion of FAA Form 8610-2, ensure that the “Remarks” section on the reverse side of the application indicates the airman’s identification (e.g., U.S. driver’s license number and current expiration date). Verify that the DME has completed the “Results of Oral and Practical Tests” and the “Designated Examiner’s Report” portions, accordingly. Verify the “FAA Inspector’s Report” is complete in its entirety, including approval date, signature, and the FSFO number.

NOTE:  The FSFO needs to review applications made under § 65.80, “hold for age,” and disapproved applications. These applications must have the “FAA Inspector’s Report” portion completed.

5-1137    ORAL AND PRACTICAL SKILL TEST ADMINISTRATION.

A.    Standardized Test Procedures. The current edition of FAA Order 8900.2, General Aviation Airman Designee Handbook, provides standardized procedures for conducting and processing mechanic oral and practical tests. Inspectors and examiners conducting the tests must use this handbook to ensure a satisfactory standard of competency by applicants for mechanic certificates.

B.    FAA Form 8610-2. The only acceptable evidence of having passed a required oral or practical test is FAA Form 8610-2. In the “Results of Oral and Practical Tests” portion on the reverse side, the form must indicate either that the applicant has passed, with a 24-month expiration date, or that the applicant has failed, listing the questions and/or projects failed in the remarks section.

C.    Retest Applicants. An applicant for a retest must first present a valid airman test report (with raised, embossed seal) from a computer test center, two newly completed FAA Forms 8610-2, and the failed FAA Form 8610-2. If less than 30 days has passed since the last test, the applicant must present a letter from an appropriate source indicating additional instruction received in each subject previously failed. The letter of additional instruction should mention the minimum requirements for the person providing the training. That person must hold an airman certificate with at least the rating the applicant is testing for. The retest must cover all subject areas in the failed, incomplete, or expired section. However, applicants who apply for retest within 60 days to the same DME who gave the failed test may, at the option of the DME, be tested only in the subject areas failed, not completed, or that have expired.

D.    Additional Ratings. Applicants for additional rating(s) who have passed the General section of the test need not retake the General section. Proof of passing the General section may be in the form of a current mechanic certificate or FAA Form 8610-2 indicating the previous passage of the section.

5-1138    CHANGE OF ADDRESS/NAME/GENDER/CITIZENSHIP/NATIONALITY/ DATE OF BIRTH.

NOTE:  For changes to the name, gender, citizenship/nationality, and birth date on an airman certificate, use FAA Form 8610-2. On the form, section I, section IV, the “FAA Inspector’s Report” portion (with the “approved” box marked, and date, signature, and FAA district office number included), and the method of identification shown in the “Remarks” section on the reverse side of the application must be completed. The date the inspector signed the “Inspector’s Report” will be the same date on the temporary certificate (see Figure 5-137D, Sample of Completed FAA Form 8610-2 (Name Change)).

A.    Change of Address. The holder of an airman certificate issued under part 65 must notify the FAA in writing within 30 days after any change in permanent mailing address.

Airman Certification Branch, AFS-760

P.O. Box 25802

Oklahoma City, OK 73125

1)    The letter must be signed, dated, and contain the name in which the certificate was issued, the permanent mailing address (including ZIP code), Social Security Number (SSN) (if any), date and place of birth of the certificate holder, and any available information regarding the grade, number, and date of issue of the certificate and the ratings on it.
2)    The letter must be accompanied by a check or money order made payable to the FAA. The fee for a replacement airman certificate is $2 for each reissued certificate.

NOTE:  AC Form 8060-55 and AC Form 8060-56, Application for Replacement of Lost or Destroyed, or Paper Airman Certificate(s), as well as an Application for Replacement of Lost or Destroyed Knowledge Test Report(s), and other certification resources, including Airmen Certification’s Online Services, are available at http://www.faa.gov/licenses_certificates/airmen_certification/.

5-1139    FALSIFICATION, FRAUDULENT REPRODUCTION, OR ALTERATION OF DOCUMENTS. Persons who falsify, fraudulently reproduce, or alter certificates or other documents required to support the issuance of a certificate are subject to suspension or revocation of any airman or ground instructor certificate held by that person. Remind applicants that Title 18 of the United States Code (18 U.S.C.), § 1001 applies, which states that whoever, in any matter within the jurisdiction of any department or agency of the United States, knowingly and willfully falsifies, conceals, or covers up by any trick, scheme, or devise a material fact, or makes any false, fictitious, or fraudulent statements or representations, or makes or uses any false writing or document knowing the same to contain false, fictitious, or fraudulent statements or entries, will be fined under 18 U.S.C. or imprisoned, or both. The paper-to-plastic Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) was finalized on February 28, 2008. All mechanics that do not have the new security-enhanced plastic airman certificate must get a replacement by March 31, 2013. After this date, the airman will not be able to exercise the privileges of their paper mechanic certificate.

5-1140    INELIGIBLE APPLICANTS.

A.    Suspended Certificate Holders. An airman with a suspended or revoked mechanic certificate may not apply for another rating during the period of suspension/revocation. The inspector must review the suspension/revocation order, which will specify any unique terms regarding its duration. An airman with a revoked mechanic certificate may not reapply for that certificate for a period of up to 1 year after the date of revocation. The inspector must review the revocation order if that applicant attempts to apply before 1 year has expired.

B.    Denial of Applications. Section 65.12(a) and (b) are grounds for denial of application of a certificate to any person convicted of a drug-related offense within the previous 12 months.

NOTE:  Although § 65.12 is titled “Offenses Involving Alcohol or Drugs”, General Counsel has determined that § 65.12 does not cover alcohol-related convictions.

NOTE:  A conviction that is under legal appeal is not a final conviction.

5-1141    COMPETENCY EXAMINATIONS/REEXAMINATIONS. Title 49 of the United States Code (49 U.S.C.), § 44709 provides for reexamination.

A.    Questionable Competency. An airman demonstrating questionable competency while exercising the privileges of the certificate and ratings may be reexamined.

1)    Inspectors must consider airman competency as a factor in the following:

·    Complaint investigations;

·    Surveillance;

·    Unairworthy aircraft notice issuance;

·    Incident investigations;

·    Accident investigations;

·    Enforcement investigations; and

·    Hearings, both formal and informal.

2)    Questions of airman competency may arise from any source.

B.    Reexamination Results. Based on the results of a reexamination, the FAA must approve, amend, suspend, or revoke the airman’s certificate.

5-1142    COORDINATION REQUIREMENTS. None.

5-1144    PROCEDURES.

A.    Review Application. The ASI will check the enhanced Vital Information Database (eVID) and PTRS to determine the status of any existing certificates and to determine if the applicant has made previous attempts to obtain authorization for testing. If the PTRS indicates that the applicant may have been previously denied due to lack of qualification or knowledge, then further research should be performed prior to issuing an authorization. Enter the results of the research in the PTRS comments section when recording the authorization or denial.

1)    If the applicant has previously held or currently holds an airman certificate, check the eVID. Obtain a copy of any suspension/revocation order for review. If the applicant is ineligible for a certificate/rating, return the application and take enforcement action under § 65.20, if appropriate.
2)    If the applicant is eligible, proceed with the certification.

B.    Ensure that the Applicant Meets Requirements for Certificate/Rating.

1)    Ensure that the applicant has met the experience requirements. If the applicant is eligible for only one rating, ensure that FAA Form 8610-2 has a line through the rating for which the applicant is not eligible.

NOTE:  Refer to FAA Order 8900.2, Chapter 6, Technical Personnel Examiner Program, for examples of completed FAA Form 8610-2.

2)    Determine if the applicant can read, write, speak, and understand English.
3)    Verify that the applicant is at least 18 years old. If the applicant is under 18 years of age, explain they will not receive a certificate until the applicant’s 18th birthday.
4)    The following tasks at the field office:
a)    The applicant must present the Certificate of Eligibility, CG-G-EAE-4 (Figure 5-137), photo identification, and FAA Certification Performance of Job Tasks, Form CG-G-EAE-2 (Figure 5-136). It is not a requirement that the inspector review or match MOS codes to the applicant’s documentation.
b)    An ASI (Airworthiness or Avionics) who holds a mechanic certificate with an A&P rating will review the submitted items.
c)    An ASI will have the applicant fill out the PBR acknowledgement (see Figure 5-137G) prior to filling out FAA Form 8610-2.
d)    Applicants must complete two original copies of FAA Form 8610-2 with sections I, II, III, and IV filled out. Applicants and the ASI will sign both copies of FAA Form 8610-2 with original signatures. The ASI should also instruct the applicant to retain both originals for testing purposes.

NOTE:  Applicants applying based on civil experience must complete section IIIB. Applicants applying based on military experience must complete section IIIA and B. Section III should reflect completion of the FAA/Military Certification of Performance of Job Tasks (JSAMTCC) program along with the issuance control number as recorded on the applicant’s Certificate of Eligibility Form CG-G-EAE-4. In addition, the applicant must also list his or her total length of military service in section III (see Figure 5-137E, Sample of Completed FAA Form 8610-2 (JSAMTCC)).

5)    The inspector will complete the following tasks:
a)    Return original to the applicant.
b)    Sign section V of FAA Form 8610-2.
c)    Enter PTRS Code “3501 or 5501.”

NOTE:  Military applicants may still receive evaluations for authorization to take the mechanic knowledge test based on documented experience and MOS codes, as authorized in § 65.77.

C.    Proof of Completion. Ensure that the application for oral and practical tests includes proof of successful completion of applicable knowledge tests. Review appropriate airman test report to ensure the passage of all appropriate sections of the knowledge test within a 24-month period.

D.    Administering and Passing Tests. Ensure the administration and passing of oral and practical tests. If necessary, administer these tests to the applicant according to Order 8900.2.

E.    Review Oral and Practical Test Results. Verify the successful completion of all applicable sections within a 24-month period.

F.    Verify Completed “Inspector’s Report.” After verifying all information previously mentioned, complete the “Inspector’s Report.” Check the appropriate boxes, sign, date, and include the FAA district office number. Only mark the “approved” box if the inspector is the one issuing the temporary certificate.

G.    Emergency Replacement Certificates. In an emergency, one may issue a Temporary Airman Certificate to replace a lost or destroyed certificate.

1)    The following conditions must be met before issuing an emergency replacement certificate:
a)    The mechanic must show that an immediate replacement of the lost or destroyed certificate is necessary to start or continue employment.
b)    The mechanic must show that it is not possible or feasible to obtain a faxed temporary authority from AFS-760. You can obtain an online request for temporary fax authority at: http://www.faa.gov/licenses_certificates/airmen_certification.
c)    The inspector must personally know the mechanic, or they must present, in person, acceptable evidence of identity such as a valid, government-issued identification.
d)    Contact AFS-760 for verification of the airman certificate and ratings of the lost or destroyed certificate. To confirm the validity of the airman certificate, contact the Aviation Data Systems Branch (AFS‑620).
2)    Clearly mark the temporary certificate issued “EMERGENCY FIELD ISSUANCE” and limit it to the reasonable time necessary for the mechanic to obtain a duplicate certificate from AFS-760. Do not issue a temporary certificate for more than 60 days in any case. Copies of Emergency Field Issuance temporary certificates are maintained at the FSDO level. Do not send an Emergency Field Issuance application to AFS-760.
3)    An expired temporary certificate may be reissued, provided the inspector contacts AFS-760 to determine why a permanent certificate has not been issued.
4)    If the applicant returns to the FSDO to receive a Temporary Airman Certificate because he has become of age or has completed the knowledge tests reports under § 65.80, the applicant must complete the Applicant’s Certification on the back of FAA Form 8610-2. The applicant’s date must match the date the inspector signed the Temporary Airman Certificate.

5-1145    TASK OUTCOMES.

A.    Complete the PTRS Record.

B.    Issue a Certificate/Added Rating in Accordance With Instructions in Order 8900.2.

1)    After the applicant has met all the requirements for the certificate/rating, issue FAA Form 8060-4. The applicant must either typewrite this form or fill it out in ink, and the issuing official and the applicant must sign it.
a)    No original airman certificates will use the SSN of the applicant as the certificate number. The applicant may still supply their SSN on the application, but the certificate number on the Temporary Airman Certificate will be different. This has been in effect since June 1, 2002. Examiners and inspectors will always use the word “pending” in the “Certificate No.” block on the Temporary Airman Certificate.
b)    Examiners and inspectors should issue and handle FAA Form 8060-4 as follows:

1.    No person other than a Flight Standards inspector or properly designated examiner may issue these forms.

2.    Do not issue FAA Form 8060-4 unless an inspector or an authorized designated examiner has signed it.

3.    When an applicant has accomplished the prescribed examinations, the examining official will prepare FAA Form 8060-4 in duplicate with the applicant’s name and address plainly typed or printed with ballpoint pen, and sign his name in the appropriate space provided. The examiner will also insert his or her designation number in the space provided.

NOTE:  This “valid outside the United States” statement does not pertain to persons who complete their evaluation and/or testing in the United States, and/or work in the United States. In this case, the applicant must be able to read, write, speak, and understand the English language.

4.    Ensure that the duplicate copy given to the applicant is legible.

5.    Enter the word “PENDING” in the certificate number space if the applicant has never held a permanent numbered certificate. AFS-760 will assign a unique certificate number. Otherwise, enter the permanent certificate number.

NOTE:  The reverse side of FAA Form 8060-4 (Conditions of Issuance) states: This is an interim certificate issued subject to the approval of the Federal Aviation Administration pending the issue of a greater duration. As such the use of PENDING during this period is considered tantamount to a digital number for the purposes of meeting the recording requirements of 14 CFR part 43, §§ 43.9 and 43.11, as applicable.

NOTE:  On FAA Form 8610-2, when an applicant, such as a foreign applicant, does not have an SSN, then the application will have the word “none” in the SSN block. If an applicant does not wish to provide an SSN, the applicant will use the words “Do Not Use” in the SSN block on the application.

2)    For a reissuance, continue to show the previously assigned certificate number in block III. A reissued certificate may use a U.S. SSN as the certificate number if the airman wishes to retain that number as the certificate number. If a U.S. SSN appears on the application, enter the SSN without dashes or spaces immediately above the applicant’s date of birth.
a)    Fill out FAA Form 8610-2.
b)    When the applicant passes a section, check the “Pass” block and indicate the 24-month expiration date. Complete the “FAA Inspector Report” portion of FAA Form 8610-2. Sign the form with the office identifier and date.

NOTE:  The inspector’s signature in the “FAA Inspector’s Report” portion on the back of the application indicates that the inspector has only reviewed the form for completeness if he or she checks “Examined this applicant’s papers.” If the inspector actually gave the test, he or she checks the “Personally Tested” block. The signature is not an endorsement of the applicant’s eligibility.

c)    Give the applicant the other signed original of FAA Form 8610-2 with instructions to keep it until they receive the permanent certificate.
3)    Complete and submit to AFS-760 an application file with the following:
a)    A typewritten, original FAA Form 8060-4, signed by the issuing inspector/examiner.
b)    The original copy of FAA Form 8610-2 with completed sections I, II, III, IV, and V (as appropriate). For retests, also send a copy of FAA Form 8610-2, completed and signed in section V, by the inspector who originally authorized the test.
c)    Airman test report or valid Computer Airman Test Report (with a raised, embossed seal) from the Computer Testing Center (CTC).
d)    A document certifying additional instruction from a holder of an airman certificate, with at least the rating the applicant is testing for, if the applicant retook the oral and/or practical test within 30 days of the original test.
e)    AC Form 8060-1, FAA Airmen Certificate, when adding a rating.
f)    Copies of test planning sheets (DME/Designated Parachute Rigger Examiner (DPRE)).

NOTE:  FSDOs are no longer required to keep copies of the test planning sheets in the designee’s FSDO file. The office may choose to retain a copy of the test planning sheet in the designee’

g)    Send certification files via mail to AFS-760 (see address in subparagraph 5-1138F) as soon as possible to permit the necessary review and processing to take place before the expiration of the temporary certificate.

C.    Deny a Certificate/Added Rating. When the applicant fails any required section of the oral or practical test or does not complete the test, accomplish the following:

1)    Complete the “FAA Inspector’s Report” portion of FAA Form 8610-2 on the reverse side of the application. Check and complete all appropriate block(s) in the “FAA Inspector’s Report.” Ensure that the application is completed in sections I, II, III, IV, and V, as appropriate.
2)    Send to AFS-760.
3)    Return the duplicate copy to the applicant as a record of the sections passed or failed.
4)    Return other documents to the applicant, as appropriate.

D.    Retest After Failure.

1)    Conduct knowledge retest (per Order 8080.6).
2)    Conduct oral and practical retest.
a)    The oral and practical retests must cover all the subject areas in the failed section, as indicated on the application. The DME who issued the failure and/or incomplete test may examine applicants in the subject areas failed on the previous test only if they apply for retest within 60 days.
b)    If the applicant fails again, complete FAA Form 8610-2 only for the sections included in the retest. The examiner or inspector must return a valid airman test report (with a raised, embossed seal) from the CTC presented by an unsuccessful applicant for the oral/practical retest to the applicant with the second original of FAA Form 8610-2.

E.    Investigate Discrepancies. Investigate all indications or reports of falsification, fraudulent reproduction, or alteration of airman certification documents and applications.

ACTIVITIES.Conduct routine surveillance.
