    Since you need a "valid" credit card to register on line is there a way to do it in person or pay in cash?

    It's not as easy to do, but there is also a registration process where you can pay via check or money order. See more details here.

    An easier option would be to purchase a Visa gift card. They sell them at many gas stations, retail stores, grocery stores, etc. You can use that just like a credit card.

    I said I want to pay in cash... So there is no way? Getting a gift card cost money... and why should I be forced to pay more?

    Unfortunately, what you want is not always available. You should call the FAA and express your displeasure.

    It looks as your statement is incorrect. All I need to do is go to a Flight Standards District Office. Good thing there is one right next to where I work...

    Don't shoot the messenger, friend :)

    What exactly is incorrect?

    That I can pay cash... Been looking around and it seems I can... Looks like I can also get an N number for my uav... And a custom one at that.... Maybe I can use my ham call since it starts with a N. If the local county Mountie popo asks for my papers I can show him my ham license...;)

    Ah. Well, I don't think you can pay cash. But, if you figure out how to, please follow up here in case anyone else wants to do the same.
