Taken from the article:

"About 119,000 of the aircraft on the U.S. registry have "questionable registration" because of missing forms, invalid addresses, unreported sales or other paperwork problems, according to the FAA. In many cases, the FAA cannot say who owns a plane or even whether it is still flying or has been junked."

The headline for the story is a little misleading. How are they suppose to keep track of all the planes if the owners are not doing the proper paper work like they are suppose to. I do not think this is something that makes the FAA look as bad as people are making it out in my opinion.

The forms are missing because the FAA lost them. These are the same people who had agents draw guns on the King's (flight training video fame) as they boarded their legally owned Cessna.

I see in your profile it says you're a heli pilot, so I'm surprised how inaccurate your post is. The main problem is people changing addresses and not informing the FAA, not lost paperwork. All the FAA can do is send the registration to the mailing address on file.

If the FAA loses track of 119,000 aircraft then how many where never registered.

Just FYI. The FAA is beginning a new process in the registration of aircraft. If memory serves me correctly, they will be starting this in full swing next year, some have already gotten a notice. Anyway, aircraft registration had an indefinite amount of time it was valid. Now, they will be putting a 3 year limit on it, at which time you will have to renew it. Presently, registration is changed when owners change. Hopefully, they will get it fixed. It is going to take some time though.

It didn't work quite like that, sorry.

The FAA needs to clean up the way they handle stolen aircraft registrations, that was the problem that got the Kings in the aviation news arena.

... This had absolutely nothing to do with lost forms, it's also true that the FAA doesn't tell the police to draw their guns.

As the incident was going on, FAA actually DID realize the Kings were innocent, but the 'call' was too late as the Kings were already in custody.

fwiw...

Just the idea that they would tell us they have lost track of 119,000 aircraft is a setup for the old Carlin line..
