Gentleman fliers. Did we or did we not fill out an FCC license for our pilot license.

Its 20 years ago for me, and college is, um, fuzzy.

if the answer is yes, of whom do I contact to get the information. I remember doing sumtin with the FCC back in the 90's

Back in the day, pilots would have needed a radio operator's license, but that requirement was dropped for domestic flights some time ago.   More recently certificated pilots won't typically have one, unless they plan to fly internationally.

I don't know how to go about checking with the FCC to find an old license.

Can't speak for flying but you used to need a FCC license for a VHF on a pleasure boat.  I remember when you use to have to get a license for a CB.  Not sure when they stopped that.  All of those, as I'm sure the one private pilots had to get, were some type of restricted license not the same as a ham license. Restricted to use of the radio while engaged in that activity.

For CB the activity was breathing.
