There was a 23512 (DUI) over 17 years ago and 20 years ago. They have since been expunged. That being said it’s legal to answer no to this question if ever asked. Alcohol isn’t a problem. Yes almost 20 years ago, it caused a problem. It was something very dumb and plays no role currently nor for many years.
A follow up to that is that those DUI’s are still on the DMV record. The DMV records has those two blemishes that I explained above and also a 14601 (driving on suspension) stemming from not having auto insurance during an accident from 1994. This is also a misdemeanor.
I read an article “FAA SECURITY BACKGROUND CHECK RULE EXPLAINED” – it discusses employment history (no problem there) and criminal history records checks (if applicable).
I gather a criminal background check is done by default, even after any and all questions are asked, is this correct? And are the DMV records checked automatically as well?
Does anyone foresee any problems that might arise regarding these matters? Basically I am fishing for anything that might cause an inability to fly. An investment in training that costs tens of thousands of dollars would be worthless if ultimately being hired to fly is not possible.
