ATLAS Aviation

The Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA’s) Office of Aviation Safety (AVS) partnered with PSI Services LLC (PSI) to develop the Assessment Technology and License Administration System (ATLAS) Aviation, (ATLAS Aviation). ATLAS Aviation supports the FAA’s scheduling and administration of FAA Airmen Knowledge Tests (AKTs). Aviation industry individuals, e.g., pilots, parachute riggers, drone operators, airline engineers and inspectors (hereafter referred to as examinees), are required to pass examinations testing their knowledge of aviation safety regulations and requirements to obtain an FAA certification. Examinees use ATLAS Aviation to schedule and take the required AKTs. FAA employees and contractors develop the AKT questions and PSI maintains the registration and testing system and administers the AKTs. The FAA conducted this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) in accordance with the E‐Government Act of 2002 because ATLAS Aviation collects, disseminates, and uses the personally identifiable information (PII) of examinees and PSI staff responsible for system administration, scheduling, and administering of the AKTs. This PIA also addresses the privacy risks for FAA staff and contractors who access the system in their official capacity.
