Safety Assurance System (SAS) External Portal

The SAS External Portal is a free, secure, web-based application that allows current Certificate Holders and Applicants (CH/As) operating under 14 CFR Parts 121, 135, and 145 a means to communicate directly with local Flight Standards District Offices (FSDO) or Certificate Management Offices (CMO). As SAS Phase 3 is deployed, additional CFR Parts will be added to the External Portal. The SAS External Portal helps facilitate timely and streamlined communication between the FAA and CH/As pertaining to configuration, certification, and operations.

Current Certificate Holders and prospective Applicants are encouraged to access the Safety Assurance System (SAS) External Portal to sign-up for and/or sign-in to the SAS External Portal. Access SAS External Portal training and the SAS External Portal Information Guide for more information. Both resources are available free of cost.
