Rethink Biometric Pilot Credential Program To Save Program Costs

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

Instead of developing a new stand alone "pilot biometric credential", and since legislation dictates one, why not consider using the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP's) Trusted Traveler Global Entry credential for this purpose.


Although not specifically tailored for pilots currently, the global entry card could easily accomodate "pilots" via unique data elements within existing IT infrastructure for greater economies of scale and "lower costs" versus issueing a brand new card!


This card also involves in-person interviews, criminal history checks, and biometric screening to qualify pilots- highly vetting these individuals as lower-risk recipients.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
