How or can you get a airplane registered after it has been deregistered.

The key to re-registering an aircraft is to get a completed and signed FAA Aircraft Bill of Sale (FAA Form 8050-2) from the person or entity who is on record as the last registered owner of the aircraft. Once you have the bill of sale there is no problem re-registering the aircraft. And once the aircraft is registered in your name you can go about replacing the airworthiness certificate and related paperwork.

I have a situation right now where an airplane "basket case" with paperwork has been through several owners who never registered it. The entity that de-registered it (XXXXX Flying Service) has not existed since 1972. So there is no way to get that owner to sign an FAA bill of sale. What do you suggest?

Contact U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Aviation Administration Civil Aviation Registry ASF-750P.O. Box 25504 Oklahoma City, Oklahoma 73125-0504 ask for Information to aid in the registration of U.S. Civil aircraft. On this sheet item 18. is Aircraft assembled from parts. It gives clear instructions but basically you need a bill of sale for the major components Engine and Fuselage. They will also send the other required paperwork.

Thank you. We have a bill of sale for the airframe, just not the FAA form. The project is pretty complete except for an engine and prop, which we will make sure we get with a bill of sale when we purchase them.
