DWI & The FAA

Two-airline-pilots-preparing

What if I’m a pilot and get a DWI?

If you hold a FAA pilot’s license, even a non-commercial license, you are required to send a notification letter to the FAA if you have a “Reportable Offense”. For a list of what a reportable offense is, click HERE. If you don’t send a notification letter the FAA can suspend you. You can get a Notification letter HERE. This letter must be sent to:

Federal Aviation Administration
Security and Investigations Division (AMC-700)
P.O. Box 25810
Oklahoma City, OK 73125

Of course if you are a commercial pilot, you probably already understand you will never fly commercially again if you are convicted of a DWI. Not that the FAA won’t allow it, but that the chances of getting hired are extremely low.
