This advisory circular (AC) provides information that may be used to comply with the provisions of Title 49 of the United States Code (49 U.S.C.) § 44703(h), (i), and (j). This law is commonly referred to as the Pilot Records Improvement Act (PRIA) of 1996. PRIA requires the gathering and sharing of information relating to a pilot/applicant’s qualification and safety background. An air carrier or air operator is required to request those records so it can make an informed decision before hiring a pilot/applicant. PRIA shall apply to any hiring air carrier or air operator whether the pilot is hired directly or by contract. (See paragraph 1-4c.)
