drug and alcool test

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


A few questions for you.


I hear than we need to pass a alcool and drug test near the FAA to be allowed to do seating tour? It's that correct and where it's possible to do it?


And 2nd question,


Where can I go online to do the awareness safety test for the TSA? It's supposed to be required to work as CFI?


Thank's for the help

That's for the TSA test. You'll have to click the link that says "flight school security awareness training". When you're done it'll print out a ghetto certificate. Our ink was low at the time of mine so it's all faded and pink around the edges.... Awesome...


And yes you need to pass a drug/alcohol test to do Scenic Tours (i'm assuming that's what you meant, as I've never heard of a "seating tour"). Your local FSDO might know where to get it done. Good Luck

In order to be on a FAR 135 certificate or a tour / sightseeing / ride operation, you need to be enrolled in RANDOM drug & alcohol test program.


Don't worry about it, your employer will be the one responsible for overseeing, maintaining, paying for, and administaring it. You will most likely take a pre-employment drug & alcohol screening. Then they'll notify you when the computer has picked you for a random drug and/or alcohol test.


These types of flying are referred to as "safety sensitive" duties by the Dept. of Transportation. I have no idea why instructing or other commercial flying are not considered worthy of drug & alcohol testing. They definitely should be!
