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.

What's new in IACRA

IACRA Version 8.14.4

This release contains the following changes:

Remote Pilots

  • The system was not displaying all completed Remote Pilot applications on the Designee Oversight section of the Aviation Safety Inspector/Aviation Safety Technician console. This issue has been corrected.

 Remote Pilot Applicants - Please Read This First!

  • If you don't have an IACRA account, you must Register as an Applicant first before you can create a Remote Pilot application. For help registering, please read the 'Registering as an Applicant in IACRA' section in the New User Guide.
    PLEASE NOTE: You DO NOT need a Remote Pilot certificate if you are only operating your drone for hobby or recreational purposes.
  • Applicants that do not have a current pilot's certificate and current flight review MUST take the Remote Pilot knowledge test at a certified testing center before they can complete a Remote Pilot application. The Remote Pilot with Knowledge Test Guide has step-by-step IACRA instructions.
    PLEASE NOTE : It can take up to 72 hours after you take your knowledge test before it is available in IACRA.
  • Applicants that hold a current pilot's certificate and have a current flight review may opt to take the online training course at the FAA Safety Team site, or take the knowledge test, if desired. Applicants that take the training course must visit a Recommending Instructor(CFI), or other Certifying Officer(DPE, etc.), to complete their Remote Pilot application.
    The Remote Pilot with Training Course Guide has more detailed IACRA instructions.
