The National Air Transportation Association developed a Transportation Security Administration-approved program in time to meet the April 1 deadline for completion of TSA-required fingerprinting and background checks of crewmembers of air-taxi operators flying aircraft with an mtow of 12,500 pounds or more. The detailed fingerprinting collection and background check are administered by NATA Compliance Services, a subsidiary of the association. Since fingerprinting and background checks are the most time-consuming requirements, NATA had urged anyone subject to these requirements to begin the process of fingerprinting and background checks in anticipation of the deadline.
