About

The Pilot Records Database (PRD) is used to facilitate the sharing of pilot records among air carriers and operators in a clearinghouse managed by the Federal Aviation Administration. All air carriers and operators specified by part 111 can register to access the PRD and evaluate the available FAA data for each individual pilot candidate prior to making a hiring decision.

Pilots holding an FAA Commercial, Airline Transport Pilot, or Remote Pilot certificate with a current FAA medical can register in PRD and see their records. As of December 7, 2021, all air carriers and operators required to review records in accordance with PRIA and/or part 111 must use the PRD to obtain the related FAA records. Submissions of FAA Form 8060-10 are no longer be accepted.

What Records are currently provided?

Currently, the PRD is designed to comply with portions of the Airline Safety and Federal Aviation Administration Extension Act of 2010 and the Pilot Records Improvement Act of 1996 (the Acts). The PRD provides the following FAA records:

  • Name and current address
  • Airman Certificate Information
  • Medical Certificate class, limitations, and date of issuance (if applicable)
  • Enforcement History (if applicable)
  • Accident / Incident History (if applicable)
  • Previous aviation employers (if entered by the airman into the PRD)
  • Date of last NDR request (if entered by the airman into the PRD)
  • Additional records may be available after rulemaking is completed

Important Notes

  • The PRD does not contain copies (photocopies or scans) of any records. The PRD contains specific data points extracted from the records in sufficient details to comply with portions of the Acts.
  • Aviation employers who wish to use the PRD to obtain FAA records must continue to obtain non-FAA records as described in AC 120-68 (as amended).
