USDOT - Aircraft Registration Application Form 8050-1 Mobile App
The USDOT - Aircraft Registration Application Form 8050-1 app is a useful tool for registering an aircraft with the U.S.
How does it work?
Department of Transportation (USDOT). The app prompts the user to submit important information such as aircraft registration number, the aircraft manufacturer and model, the serial number for the aircraft, and the ownership structure of the aircraft (individual, company, partnership, etc.). The USDOT maintains a federal register of all aircraft which is important in ensuring that aviation equipment is properly documented and maintained. The maintenance of this register is also important for law enforcement and homeland security as aircraft may be weaponized or flown unsafely which can jeopardize lives and public safety. The app prompts the user to submit the name of the owners, proof of ownership, contact information and mail addresses and requires a certification from all owners that the aircraft is owned in adherence to U.S. federal regulations and requirements. Through the app, users can submit documents proving ownership of the aircraft.
