Picture Of Wright Brothers' Mechanic Charles Taylor Now Featured On The Back
The FAA has started issuing Mechanic and Repairman certificates with a new design on the back of the certificate honoring Charles Taylor. Since the introduction of the updated airman certificate in 2003, the Mechanic and Repairman community have requested that FAA issue a certificate that represents the contributions of Mr. Charles E. Taylor, who served as the Wright brothers’ mechanic and was credited with building the engine for the 1903 Wright Flyer.
The new design will be printed on all original and replacement airman certificates issued after January 1, 2013, to Mechanics, Repairmen, Repairmen (Experimental Aircraft Builder), and Repairmen (Light Sport Aircraft).
Mechanic and Repairman certificate holders are not required to replace their current plastic certificate. An airman may obtain the new style Mechanic, Repairman certificate with Mr. Taylor’s likeness by submitting a $2.00 replacement fee by visiting the Registry’s website, by mailing a signed replacement request, or by completing an application for an added rating or other change.
