I did a search here and couldn't find much regarding who has to get fingerprinted for 135 work. We're admittedly a littlle disorganized at work on this subject and I need to get us compliant. Any adivce would help.
Thanks :)
The PRIA standards has NO requirement for fingerprinting for US citizens, but I don't know about a non-US citizen working for a US carrier. Anybody?
No requirement unless your are on a TFSSP serurity program or need an airport ID. Just the PRIA stuff. Non-US may have TSA requirement for training??
Start here.....


There is a TSA requirement for fingerprinting (CHRC) for certain charter operators. Go to www.nbaa.org, seacrh the words twelve five and you'll get the rule.
....oops, I wasn't thinking about over 12,500. English has the good links for info.
If all you need is the basic PRIA stuff for under 12,500 operations, IMHO the NATA service is a rip-off, you can easily send in all the required forms and stuff yourself.

English thanks for the NATA link, checking it out right now. Yea, we're heavier than 12.5 so might be something to do here.

God I hate paperwork
This is not an FAR, but a reg required by TSA. Look up TSR 1544. Those are all the regulations governing the Twelve-Five Program (including fingerprinting, security checks, disqualifying offenses, etc.) I think 1544.299 is what you are looking for.
yup, I learned all about the 12.5 program today. Going for and sending people to get printed next week.
Thanks everyone.
Two words - self disclosure.

Live it, learn it, breathe it.
Am I correct in saying that the SIDA regulations apply now to 135 ops over 12,500?
