Aviation Incident Reporting Summary

An Aviation Incident Reporting Summary is a list of accidents and incidents reported to the Australian Transport Safety Bureau attributed to an Aviation Reference Number (ARN) holder. ARN holders may request a record of involvement in aviation occurrences reported to the ATSB.

The ATSB advises against the use of an Aviation Incident Reporting Summary for employment selection purposes, as the involvement, or a lack of involvement, in safety occurrences does not truly qualify an individual’s airmanship. 

Requests for an Aviation Incident Reporting Summary will not be accepted from parties other than the identified licence holder. Similarly, the result of the check will only be provided directly to the applicant.

Prepare your identification documents before starting the application process, as this request must be accompanied by a certified true copy of the applicant's pilot/flight crew licence.

The copy of the applicant’s licence must be certified by a person prescribed under the Statutory Declarations Regulations 1993 and be annotated as follows: I certify this to be a true copy of the original sighted by me.

You will need to scan or photograph the certified copy, ensuring all details are clear and readable, and attach the file using the below form.

Once submitted, your summary will be emailed to you within five working days.


Applying for a position overseas?

If applying for a position overseas and the organisation wants a letter of verification of your flight crew licence, as the issuer of your licence, CASA can issue a Flight Crew Licence (FCL) Verification Letter.
