An FAI Sporting License is required for all record attempts and all FAI sanctioned events and competitions.
Sporting License applicants must be a member of NAA or a current member of the appropriate NAA Air Sport Organization.
Sporting Licenses are free for one year with the purchase of an NAA Membership (starting at $50), or can be purchased without NAA Membership for $45. Refunds will not be issued after your application has been processed.
Processing time for an FAI Sporting License is three (3) business days. Applications submitted less than three (3) business days prior to a competition or record attempt may not be processed in time to allow you to participate.
Once your application is approved, you will receive an email directing you to log in to the member/licensee portal on the NAA website to download your Membership Card and/or FAI Sporting License. Please note that your FAI Sporting License is not valid until you receive this email. If you do not receive an email within three (3) business days, please contact NAA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
License holders can also check the status of their credentials or obtain their FAI ID number in the FAI database.
