This is the same FCC license needed to fulfill your Airframe/Poweplant Certification. We issue at exam completion, a ‘Proof of Passing’ Certificate. There is no difference in this license certification from any you might receive in an A/P Tech School or program.
EXCEPT THE PRICE!
It’s a GROL that’s all you need to know. There is no special GROL for AIRMEN, or Mariners, or radio Technicians, they are all the same!

Airmen, in order to fix radars, aircraft radios, and transponders in todays aircraft, the FCC requires you to hold a GROL license.

How to Obtain a License
Submit FCC Form 605 along with the appropriate Proof of Passing Certificates (for the requisite written examination elements). Use the FCC Form 605 and the FCC Form 159 (fee processing form) to replace a lost, stolen, or mutilated license. Many Commercial Operator License Examination Managers (COLEMs) file these documents for applicants who test with them. Ask us about providing this service to you.
