Bringing Title and Registration into the 21st Century
The FAA is updating and modernizing its title and registration system in accordance with the GAO report, but how much do you know about what changes are actually being made and how those changes might affect your business operations, costs, and registration systems.
What issues might arise from a newer, more modern electronic filing system and digital signatures? What is the difference between digital and electronic signatures, and what position is the FAA taking on this in the modernization process.
And what about GATS? What is it and how does it fit into the new modernization system?
Join us for this webinar to learn more about everything that is happening to bring Title and Registration Procedures into the 21st Century.
