NBAA Challenges FAA’s Dismissal of Additional Comment Time for New Pilot-Reporting Proposal, Sounds Call to Action

NBAA, AOPA Express Concerns Over FAA’s Pilot Records Database NPRM
Aug 6, 2020
Hello I have been out of corporate flying for 3 years but I am eager to rejoin. I am curios if there is a “checks and balances” approach to the way that corporate flight departments weed through falsifications that pilots may make on resumes and or logbooks? I know of a couple accidents through either cargo or even part 121 operators where the pilots had falsified information about their training records and had the company’s known about the training deficiencies I believe the accidents could have been prevented. I do however feel that extra costs to corporate flight departments is not the solution and hope that issue can be resolved in some way.

Entities required to report information to the PRD include operators listed above, plus:
Entities conducting public aircraft operations
Corporate flight departments (as defined in the PRD rule) and specific entities operating under Part 125

rating under 14 CFR part 61, § 61.31(a) and/or turbine-powered rotorcraft;
