Initial Reporting of Alcohol or Drug Related Offenses

Follow Us:
All pilots are MUST file a written report with the FAA’s Security and Investigations Division regarding any cancellation, suspension or revocation of a driver’s license related to an alcohol related driving offense. This requirement is separate and distinct from the answers an airman is required to provide on an Airman Medical Application. This report MUST be filed within 60 days from the date of the driver license suspension, revocation, cancellation or conviction. The failure to file a written report in either of these circumstances is grounds for denial, suspension or revocation of the airman’s medical certificate. When an alcohol related driving offense is reported the FAA will compile a case file, verify airman status, obtain driving history from the state.Contact us.Aviation attorneys at Barnett Law Offices deliver outstanding legal services, listen to your needs and goals, and keep you informed. If you would like to talk with one of our aviation attorneys, please call us at (800) 578-5512 or write to us using our contact form.

Since the filing of the report almost always triggers an FAA investigation and certificate action, Barnett starts his investigation and begin gathering information before the certificate action commences.
