The USA pilots data are downloaded from the FAA regularly.
IMPORTANT: None of the data can be used for flight, they are for non-critical personal information only. Do not rely on these data in any way. The FAA is the primary authority as to the "real" information for all information regarding USA pilots.
Fill in only the conditions that you want to search for. To specify more than one string in a field, separate the strings by commas. The search will return all records that match at least one string from each of the specified fields. If you specify contradicting conditions (for instance State: MA and ZIP 82344) you will get no entries back. The strings are interpreted as Unix style regular expression. This means that a "New" in the City field (without the quotation marks) will match "New York" as well as "New Brunswick".
If you get no entries back, it is probably because there are no matching entries in the database. This can be either because you mis-typed an entry or because you specified contradicting criteria, or there really are no registrations with the specified selection criteria.
Be careful when specifying the Country of the pilot. For countries other than the USA, you need to know exactly how the FAA spelled each country. You may want to specify only a part of the country name that is likely to be in the FAA version. The regular expression feature willl automatically find all matching countries.
The search engine is optimized for searches by pilot name. These searches are very quick. However other searches through the 600,000 pilots may take several minutes. Searches will return a maximum of 100 entries.
Important: When you select a rating that has indented ratings directly below it, you search for ANY of the indented ratings. Additionally selecting any of the indented ratings has no effect. For instance if you select "Airplane rating", then selecting the indented "Multiengine Sea rating" below it has no effect, it will be found anyhow. If you want to discriminate the individual airplane ratings, you should NOT select the superseeding checkbox for "Airplane rating".
All input fields are case insensitive, so you can enter upper or lower case letters.
