Podcast: Pilot Records Database Update

Nov. 29, 2021

Despite a deadline that passed two months ago, many business aircraft operators that are required to register for the FAA’s Pilot Records Database (PRD), an online repository for pilot information accessible to hiring companies and the agency, have yet to do so. Starting Dec. 8, the FAA will no longer process Form 8060-10s for requests for FAA records to comply with the Pilot Records Improvement Act (PRIA). So in order to comply with PRIA, a hiring air carrier will have to access the PRD in order to access the records of a prospective job candidate. “We are concerned that for those folks who have not signed up for the PRD, there may be a backlog in us being able to assist and provide that access,” said the FAA’s Rob Reckert. “[That] could have an effect on the carrier’s ability to hire, and that is the last thing we would want the PRD to do.”

In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:

  • Brian Koester, CAM, NBAA director, flight operations and regulations
  • Rob Reckert, FAA division manager, AFS600
