Apply for Membership

RTCA offers a variety of membership types. To find the membership level that's right for your organization, please review the categories on the Membership Categories page.


Membership Application Process

  1. Application Submission- All applications must set forth the organization's qualifications, including a brief description of your organization's aviation-related activities.
  2. Application Review- Once received, your application will be reviewed to ensure that all criteria are met. Management reserves the right to deny an application if criteria are not met. Management reserves the right to ask for additional documentations due to insufficient information submitted by the applicant.
  3. Dues Payment- When application is approved, you will receive a notification via email with a payment link. A dues payment invoice specific to your membership category for the first year will also be posted on your online account. The fastest way to activate your membership is by using a credit card via express payment link or making a payment online via e-check/ACH. Membership activation fee is non-refundable.
  4. Membership Activation- Upon full payment, you will receive a notification confirmation that your membership is active. Membership benefits are extended only to each full-time employee of a member company. Please read our Electronic License Agreement 
  5. Membership Renewal - Membership is renewed on the anniversary date your organization's application was approved. You will receive a notification via email when your renewal invoice is available on your online account. Per our company policy, we do not allow early termination of membership prior to expiration date. Membership renewal fee is non-refundable.

Please read our Electronic Licensing Agreement for more information

NOTE: Do not fill-out a membership application form if your organization is a current RTCA member. Please check out our Membership Directory to search for your organization before applying for membership.
