Mail-in Airman Certification Renewal Service (ACR)


Paperless ACR Processing allows Gleim to utilize the FAA IACRA system to process your CFI renewal.


Processing your CFI renewal is easy and convenient using our inexpensive ACR Processing service. ACR Processing allows Gleim to process your renewal request and issue a temporary certificate for you to use until the FAA sends your permanent certificate. With ACR Processing, you will not need to make an appointment and travel to the nearest FAA FSDO to process your renewal.

Go to the ACR Processing information page to get more detailed instructions on how to process your CFI renewal through the Gleim ACR Processing service.
