An Aviation Incident Reporting Summary (AIRS) 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 strongly advises against the use of an AIRS 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 AIRS 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 2018 and may be annotated as follows: I certify this to be a true and accurate copy of the original sighted by me.  The person who certifies the copy should also include a description of their occupation or capacity to certify the document.

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.
