  • Aircraft Broker License

Once you have completed your training, you must get your aircraft broker license. This will, however, depend on whether your state requires you to get one. In addition to this, the requirements for obtaining a broker's license in this field vary from state to state. So you might want to research your state laws about the licensing system of the aircraft brokerage. Do not fret about this since you can easily find the information online.

But most of these states have more or less the exact requirements. For example, if you are from Oklahoma, you can find the state laws concerning aircraft licensing in subchapter two, chapter fifteen of the tax commission, where it states that any dealer of aircraft, whether it be an old or new one, must first obtain an aircraft dealer license. Another requirement for aircraft brokers that most states look for an applicant is a separate license if you set up another business at a different location besides your main office. There is also an application and a fee that must be submitted. A few states also require the applicant to be a bona fide dealer as one of the qualifications to be an aircraft broker. All of these requirements and qualifications must be met for the issuance or renewal of the license.
