Federal Aviation Administration Management Information System (FAAMIS)

The Federal Aviation Administration Management Information System (FAAMIS) serves as a central repository and is used by Aviation Safety Inspectors (ASIs) and support personnel to conduct queries to retrieve reports on results of inspections related to aviation safety for air carriers, air agencies, aircraft incidents, and other aviation entities and activities. FAAMIS is also used to gather information when responding to internal and external requests such as Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), background and statistical information to Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Office of the Chief Counsel for their use in litigation procedures, and background and statistical information for Congressional inquiries or in support of the U.S. General Accounting Office (GAO) audits. FAAMIS is owned and operated by the FAA Office of Aviation Safety (AVS) System Approach for Safety Oversight (SASO) Program Office, Automation and Policy Team (AFS-910) and operates under Title 49 United States Code (U.S.C.) § 40101, 49 U.S.C. § 40113, 49 U.S.C. § 44701, and 49 U.S.C. § 44702.  

This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) was conducted pursuant to the E-Government Act of 2002 because FAAMIS maintains exact copies of records that are received from FAA systems discussed in the Overview section of this PIA.  FAAMIS maintains Personally Identifiable Information (PII) about air carriers, air agencies, designated airmen, and check airmen that include name, address, airmen certification number, date of birth, and other PII discussed in the PIA.
