Licensing & Registration

  • The State of Michigan has laws which govern the registration of aircraft and the licensing of airports and other services throughout the state. This site provides resources for airport licensing and management, aircraft registration and other state mandated processes.

    The Section also maintains responsibility for licensing and/or registering airports, flight schools, aircraft, and aircraft dealers.

    Each of Michigan's 234 public-use airports and heliports are inspected annually. There are currently 66 flight schools, 144 aircraft dealers, and approximately 6,500 aircraft registered in the state.
