  • Let our Airman Certification Representative (ACR) team process your certificate completely online

  • You can purchase our ACR service immediately during registration or after you complete the course
  • No physical paperwork – the entire process takes place online
  • You will receive your Temporary Airman Certificate by email
  • Fast, Easy, and Convenient renewal processing

if you complete our paperless checklist by 3pm Central Time at least 3 days before your expiration and your application has no mistakes, 99% of the time we will issue your renewal on the same day for no extra charge! No waiting several days like you do with other FIRCs! 

Why do you need to complete the checklist at least 3 days before expiration? If your application does have mistakes, processing takes longer since we’ll need to work with you to get those corrected. There are also things like IACRA outages that can affect your renewal processing time. 

Lifetime FIRC Option

  • You only pay once. After that, you can come back every time your CFI is due and complete our FIRC without paying again
  • Your membership with AceCFI never expires
  • Take the course every 90 days if you want — great for Chief Instructors who need it every year!
  • We proudly give back to the aviation community by supporting organizations like the National Association of Flight Instructors
  • No gimmicks, no games. We strive to offer an outstanding FIRC at an excellent price

Which FIRC Should You Choose?

"Greetings from Hawaii. I want to take a moment to thank the entire Ace team. I have been a member since 2016 and recently completed my third CFII renewal. This year’s renewal was the toughest given my active duty first responder responsibilities and the COVID-19 pandemic. I have been on the COVID 19 mission since January and had little to no time to complete the renewal. However the quality ACE product, IACRA service and rapid certification allowed me to complete the renewal requirement and stay current. Thank you for the incredible, reliable customer oriented product and service even during these difficult times in our country’s history."
