Step #3: Locate your nearest Designated Pilot Examiner or an FAA Flight Standards District Office (FSDO)
You can turn your paperwork in to either a Designated Examiner, or if you prefer you can turn your paperwork in to an Inspector at an FAA FSDO.

- Note: If you use this Designated Pilot Examiner locator page on the FAA web site, you will first select the radio button for 'Pilot Examiners', then select a Designee Type of 'MCFPE - Military Competency / Foreign Pilot Examiner', select an 'FAA Office' that seems geographically close to you, and then click 'Search'.
