The Known Crewmember Program (KCM) has officially been expanded to include Part 135 and 125 charter pilots, with yesterday’s first nonscheduled airline use of this program at Washington Dulles International Airport. KCM is a risk-based screening system that enables TSA officers to verify the identity and employment status of flight crewmembers. The program, developed by Airlines for America and the Air Line Pilots Association International, “expedites flight crewmember access to sterile areas of airports, reduces passenger-screening line congestion, enhances security and makes airport checkpoint screening more efficient.”
