00.—AIRCRAFT REGISTRATION CERTIFICATE

00.0—PROVISION FOR ISSUANCE.—Pursuant to the provisions of the Air Commerce Act requiring the Secretary of Commerce to provide for the granting of registration to aircraft eligible therefor, a registration certificate will be issued by the Secretary for purposes of identifying the aircraft and determining its nationality, upon request of the owner and approval of application made and proofs submitted, for any aircraft duly shown to be eligible for such registration as an aircraft of the United States. A record of such registration will be maintained by the Secretary.

00.01—Except for changes in eligibility and/or ownership, the validity of the present registration of each aircraft shall be concurrent with the validity of its license for airworthiness in force on the date these regulations go into effect.

00.1—ELIGIBILITY.—No aircraft shall be eligible for registration unless

(a) it is a civil aircraft owned by a citizen of the United States and is not registered under the laws of any foreign country, or unless

(b) it is a public aircraft of a Federal Government or of a State, Territory or possession, or of a political subdivision thereof.

00.2—APPLICATION.—The owner of any aircraft, who desires a registration certificate for the aircraft as an aircraft of the United States, shall make application therefor to the Secretary upon a form supplied for the purpose, which may be combined with the application for a certificate of airworthiness under CAR 01.

00.20—Documentary Evidence of Ownership.—The following documents may be considered as acceptable evidence of ownership for the registration of aircraft.

00.200—New aircraft, owned by the manufacturer, and for which the manufacturer applies for registration: The appropriate application form.

00.201Registered Aircraft.—The registration certificate, issued for such aircraft, executed in accordance with the provisions of CAR 03. If such registration certificate has been lost or destroyed, an affidavit to that effect must be submitted, together with an application for registration on the appropriate form, accompanied by—

(a) A certified copy of a bill of sale which transfers all right, title and interest in and to the aircraft to the purchaser, or

(b) A duly authenticated bill of sale from a public officer duly authorized to issue same, with the authority of said officer certified thereon.

(c) A certified copy of an order of court of competent jurisdiction determining title.

00.3—ISSUANCE.—Upon approval of an application duly made and proofs submitted, a registration certificate will be issued by the Secretary, together with an identification mark as provided in CAR 02.20.

00.30—Temporary Certificate.—Pending the issuance of a certificate, a Bureau inspector may issue a temporary registration certificate, together with an identification mark as provided in CAR 02.21.

00.4—DISPLAY.—The registration certificate shall be carried in the aircraft at all times, and shall be presented for inspection upon the demand of any authorized official or employee of the Department of Commerce, or upon the reasonable request of any other person.

00.5—AS EVIDENCE.—For the purpose of exercising any privilege granted by any international convention, or of enforcing national laws, the registration certificate (or registration) will be deemed prima facie evidence of the nationality of the aircraft.

00.6—DURATION.—A registration certificate, when issued, will remain effective for an indeterminate time, or until

(a) the aircraft is no longer eligible for registration as an aircraft of the United States, or

(b) ownership of the aircraft is transferred, or

(c) registration of the aircraft is cancelled at the written request of the owner, or

(d) registration of the aircraft is suspended or revoked.

00.7—NON-TRANSFERABILITY.—A registration certificate is not transferable. (For effect of transfer of title on the registration certificate, see CAR 03.)

00.8—SUSPENSION OR REVOCATION.—A registration certificate may be suspended or revoked for any of the following reasons:

(a) Any false statement by the owner in his application for said certificate, or in any information accompanying the application.

(b) Loss of eligibility as defined in CAR 00.1.

(c) Any other reason causing the aircraft to become ineligible for registration as an aircraft of the United States.

00.9—SURRENDER.—Upon notice from the Secretary of the suspension or revocation of a registration certificate, the owner of the aircraft to whom same has been issued shall promptly return such certificate to the Secretary.

Any and all rules or regulations made, established, and issued by the Secretary of Commerce pursuant to law as are inconsistent with the provisions of the above specified civil air regulations are hereby repealed.
