Question Saw no mention of this in anything from the FAA

And something that just occurred to me, how does the FAA handle new pilots?

Little Timmy shows up at the club, and want's to learn to fly. He's assigned a trainer, and club plane to learn on. He doesn't own a single craft.

Is he required by the FAA to have a registration? Not talking about anything from the AMA or the club, both often waive any type of joining for initial training. This is FAA specific.

Does the FAA require someone who doesn't own a craft, flying someone else' plane to be registered?

And if something happens, who does the FAA go after. The club for allowing a non registered pilot? The trainer for allowing a non registered pilot to operate his craft? Or little Timmy for flying a plane while not registered? Or all of them?

Dang, where's Lassie when we need her?

In that scenario it would seem the owner and/or PIC is responsible, just as it would be prior to the registration. The FAA's document is exhaustive, but isn't going to speak to many one off situations. Ownership I think would be where you start in your scenario.

The owner of the craft is to be registered. Pretty simple.

Except when the owner is too young(under 13). In that case, someone older must do the registering.
