Enhanced Security Screening for Pilots Starts at O'Hare

The Known Crewmember program sponsored by the Air Line Pilots Association International and the Air Transport Association begins this week at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport.

The Air Line Pilots Association International announced that Known Crewmember, a national enhanced security screening program for airline pilots, will begin this week at Chicago O'Hare International Airport. It is the first of several test sites nationwide, according to ALPA, which sponsors the program with the Air Transport Association and says it will increase aviation security and reduce passenger screening lines.

"The Known Crewmember program creates an enhanced security screening process for airline pilots that reflects the extensive background checks they already receive as employees and recognizes the position they hold on the front lines of aviation security each and every time they fly their aircraft," said Capt. Lee Moak, ALPA's president. "We are pleased to have joined with the Air Transport Association to bring the first phase of the Known Crewmember program to Chicago, and we look forward to expanding the program nationwide."

In April 2011, the Transportation Security Administration announced the system's verification testing was beginning. The program ties airline employee databases together, enabling TSA security officers to positively verify identity and employment status of crew members.
