Submitting an Inspection Authorization Renewal Application

  • Once you are registered, you can return to your console and start an Inspection Authorization Renewal application.
    • Note: If IACRA cannot locate a previous inspection authorization in your Airman record, you will not be able to start an application.
  • Once you submit and sign your application, it will automatically be routed to the FSDO listed in your application.
  • An ASI or AST at that FSDO will then retrieve your submitted application, complete the remainder of the process and sign your application.
  • Once signed, you may log into IACRA, navigate to your console and review/print your IA letter. You will also be notified via email when your IA letter is available.
