Review Your FAA Airman Records; Grant Consent to Hiring Aviation Employers

The Pilot Records Database (PRD) has been available as a beta since January 2017. PRD allows certain aviation employers such as those operating under FAR Parts 121 and 135 to review an aiman's FAA records online after an airman has granted consent via PRD.

This review of an airman's records normally occurs during the hiring process as required by the Pilot Record Improvement Act of 1996 (PRIA).

As part of the PRD beta release, airman who are applying for employment with an aviation employer may be asked to provide consent which allows the company to review your airman records online via PRD.

ATP and Commercial pilots are invited to log into PRD* and review your FAA airman records. This includes certificate information, incidents or accidents, enforcements, and more. You can also enter your previous aviation employers which will simplify the PRIA process when applying for a new pilot position.


  • FAA ATP or Commercial Pilot Certificate
  • Current FAA Medical
  • Online Identity Verification during account creation
  • *Not all users who wish to use PRD will be able to complete the online identity verification process. Those users must continue to use the existing PRIA processes and forms. An alternate registration option will be made available in the future. Subscribe to PRD Updates to stay informed.
