  Date Training Began

  As Per the revised 8710-1 form

 

 

  Residential Address

 Please Note: This is your permanent (not temporary) place of residence and should not be a business address. If you wish to receive mail at an address other than your permanent residence, then enter your mailing address in the Mailing Address section.

 Your Residential address is your permanent place of Residence and is always required. For 8710 users, on the 8710 it will be displayed in Section IE1, and on your Temporary Certificate.

  Mailing Address

The Mailing Address that you provide is only required if it is different that your Residential Address. If you want your permanent certificate mailed to a different location other than your Residential Address, then you will want to complete this section. If you enter a Mailing Address, this address will be printed on the permanent certificate instead of the Residential Address.

 

You must provide the FAA your Residential Address since it is required by law, if you don't have one, then provide a map to your home or written directions.

  Here is an example of a user who may have both a Residential and Mailing Address:

E1. Residential Address E2. Mailing Address
115 NW 16th Street P.O. Box 1234
Norman, OK 73169 Oklahoma City, OK 73071

  Special Mailing Address

You only need to enter a Special Mailing Address if your Special Mailing Address is different from your permanent Residential Address or Mailing Address. One example of when a special mailing address can be used is when international students request their certificate(s) to be “special mailed” to their flight school address. Please note when any certificate is special mailed, it will take up to 2 weeks longer for the certificate to arrive in the mail, this includes FED EX, etc.

 Only your Residential Address (or Mailing Address, if entered) will be printed on your permanent certificate.

 

Here is an example of a user who may have both a Residential Address and a Special Mailing Address

E1. Residential Address  ----- I request the certificate to be special mailed to:

115 NW 16th Street 3456 SW 90th Street
Norman, OK 73169 San Antonio, TX 78056

  Address Validation

IACRA performs several checks on your address using information from the U.S. Postal Service (USPS.) Your Residential address is formatted to match current USPS standards, and it’s also checked to determine if it’s a business address. Entering a valid Residential address is very important. Using a Business/Commercial address as a Residential address will usually result in a correction notice being issued for Airman applications. USPS PO Boxes and other types of personal mail boxes (the boxes in a Mailboxes Etc. or The UPS Store, for instance) are not valid Residential addresses. Training Centers and Schools are not valid Residential addresses either.

 See 8900.1, Vol. 5, Cha 1, Sec 3, Para 5-54B(2)) here for additional guidance
