Special Edition Podcast: The FAA Pilot Records Database Goes Live

Sept. 1, 2021

The first compliance date for the FAA’s Pilot Records Database is coming up on Sept. 8, and many business aircraft operators and pilots still have questions about their responsibilities under the program, and who will be able to access their information. “An individual pilot has to grant access to any entity – except the FAA – to view any records that are in the Pilot Records Database,” said Rich Boll, chair of the Airspace, ATC and Flight Technologies Working Group of the NBAA Access Committee. “If you are going to hire a pilot, and you want to use the Pilot Records Database to review a pilot’s records, that pilot has to grant access.”

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

  • Rich Boll, chair, Airspace, ATC and Flight Technologies Working Group of the NBAA Access Committee
  • Brian Koester, CAM, NBAA director, flight operations and regulations
