"Records related to an individual acting as pilot in command or second in command during an aviation accident or incident."


I'm not 100% certain what this even means.

An "accident" has a specific definition, and is reported to the NTSB, not the FAA.

So we're talking NTSB reportable accidents? Do they mean company records? Post-accident drug tests results?

Disciplinary records? That usually carries some privacy protections, if nothing else implied by the threat of lawsuit but I guess federal law could over-ride that.

The PRD report does include a query of the FAA Accident / Incident Data System (AIDS) database. So yes, accidents and incidents will be reported under both PRD and PRIA.

HOWEVER, they will only show up on your record if the FAA investigator determined that your actions or lack thereof directly contributed to the accident/incident. If the FAA investigator determines that a crewmember's actions did not directly contribute to the accident, their name and certificate number are typically not included on the report or entered into the AIDS database.

You could always file a FOIA request with the FAA office that investigated the accident and request a copy of the FAA's accident report if you want to be certain.
