How a San Diego DUI affects Pilot Licenses and Certificates for Airline Pilots

It is essential as a San Diego DUI attorney in navigate the client through the process.  Several professions come with consequences of a San Diego DUI. San Diego is home to several pilots who use San Diego as their hub.  Here is how a San Diego DUI can affect Pilot Licenses and Certificates for Airline Pilots.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has strict guidelines for commercial and private aircraft pilots for any driver’s license administrative or court action relating to driving under the influence or with an unlawful blood alcohol level.

Under 14 CFR 61.15 (Code of Federal Regulations) an action, either made by the Department of Motor Vehicles or court, must be reported to the FAA within 60 calendar days of the effective date. This means that if the DMV suspends the driver’s license and then in court there is a DUI conviction sometime after sixty days from the license suspension, two letters must go to the FAA. The FAA will only count it as one action, but both must be disclosed.

These reportable offenses include the following:

  • revocation or suspension of the driver’s license for refusing to take a chemical test
  • revocation or suspension after an Administrative Per Se suspension due to a DUI
  • conviction for driving while under the influence
  • conviction for driving while impaired
  • conviction for driving with an unlawful blood alcohol level (BAC)
  • operating while under the influence

For San Diego purposes, a “driving” not “operating” state, this would include any DMV suspension related to a San Diego DUI and any conviction for driving under the influence or driving with a .08 or greater described in Vehicle Code sections 23152(a) and (b) and 23153(a) and (b).

If a aircraft pilot or applicant has a prior DUI conviction or administrative driver’s license suspension within the last three years, the applicant may be denied a pilot’s certificate for up to one year or the current certificate will be suspended.

Reportable actions to the FAA must be prevented to maintain a pilot’s certificate. An experienced DUI attorney can assist you through the process and fight the DMV and court actions to save your commercial or private pilot’s license.

If you are a pilot and have been arrested with a San Diego DUI, hire a Proactive, affordable, and quality defense when you are facing San Diego DUI charges.  Whether you have been charged of a San Diego DUI, Poway DUI, La Mesa DUI, Santee DUI, Mission Valley DUI, Clairemont DUI, Point Loma DUI, La Jolla DUI, Carmel Valley DUI, Mira Mesa DUI, Pacific Beach DUI, Del Mar DUI, Carmel Valley DUI, Encinitas DUI, Oceanside DUI, Ocean Beach DUI, Escondido DUI, Vista DUI, San Marcos DUI, Carlsbad DUI, El Cajon DUI it is vital you need to hire an attorney who knows how to defend your rights and can determine if the government can prove their case.  Contact the Law Office of Mark Deniz now for a free case evaluation at (858) 751-4384 or send an email to mark@denizdefense.com.
