Since you will probably have a hard time making aircraft key copies at your local home improvement retailer, you’re going to need the assistance of a qualified locksmith. The good news is if you have the original key, it’s easy enough for a locksmith to create airplane key copies.
In the unlikely event that Quickly Locksmith is unable to assist you with a copy, you will need to go directly to the aircraft’s local service center.
If for any reason you have lost the original key, the service center can assist you with a new key, provided you can prove ownership of the aircraft.
Regardless of whether Quickly Locksmith or your local service center makes the key copes, a keycode is required if you no longer have the original. This is an alpha-numeric code that’s unique to your aircraft and is used to decipher the bidding of the lock, which is necessary to create duplicates.
The keycode is usually found on a plastic tag attached to the key. However, if you no longer have this, you can usually refer to your logbook to find it.
Never share your aircraft’s keycode with anyone except the trusted professional assisting you with duplicate keys.
It’s highly recommended that you make more than one duplicate and keep them in separate locations for safety purposes.
