FAA Expected To Add Photos To Pilot Certificates
The FAA will move forward on requiring photos for pilot certificates. The requirement for pilot certificates to have a photo and be capable of carrying biometric data (such as fingerprint or iris scans) has been around since 2004, but the FAA hasn’t completed the process. Currently, pilots are required to carry a government-issued photo ID in addition to their pilot certificate. The current certificates can carry the biometric data, although no such data currently is required.
