The FAA has just released a greatly expanded version of the original Pilot Record Improvement Act advisory circular (AC 120-68F) to address more operational situations employers might encounter related to a new-hire pilot’s professional certifications, safety record and possible law-enforcement actions.

The original Pilot Record Improvement Act of 1996 was enacted to ensure that air carriers fully investigate all aspects of a pilot’s background at least five years prior to the date of employment, before allowing a pilot to conduct commercial operations.
