Integrated Airman Certification and Rating Application (IACRA)

IACRA is the web-based certification/rating application that guides the user through the FAA's airman application process. IACRA helps ensure applicants meet regulatory and policy requirements through the use of extensive data validation. It also uses electronic signatures to protect the information's integrity, eliminates paper forms, and prints temporary certificates.

 Important Information Regarding the Next IACRA Update...

The next IACRA update, currently scheduled for the end of February, will include implementation of Aviation English Language Standards (AELS). As part of that update, any application signed by an applicant, but not signed by the certifying officer (CO), will have the applicant's signature deleted and the application will be returned to an “unsigned” status. The applicant will have to resign the application and the Pilot's Bill of Rights after the CO answers the AELS question.

Applications completed before the release, or those that haven't been signed by the applicant, will be unaffected.  Only applications signed by the applicant but not yet completed by the CO will be affected.

IACRA Version 8.15

This release contains the following changes:

Registration / Application

  • Users may now apply for ATP certificates with Restricted Privileges (61.160). The applicant can apply for this certificate under Part 61, 142, 121 and 135 based on specific criteria to include qualifying hours, former or current Military, or credits from a Degree program.
  • Several statuses have been renamed to be more descriptive. For instance, "Submitted" has been renamed "Partially Complete – Ready for Next Action" to indicate the application isn't complete.
  • Applicants will now have the ability to delete applications that have the status of "Partially Complete – Ready for Next Action." A delete option has been added as an Available Action on the applicant’s console.
