FAA Drug Testing: Essential Information for Airlines

The aviation industry is subject to strict regulatory oversight, particularly concerning the use of drugs and alcohol. As an airline, understanding and complying with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Drug Testing regulations are critical to ensuring safety in the skies and maintaining your operating status. Tom Allen Enterprises Inc. provides comprehensive Drug Testing Services tailored to the needs of airlines and aviation professionals, helping you navigate these regulations with ease and confidence.

Understanding FAA Drug Testing Regulations

Under the Department of Transportation (DOT), the FAA oversees drug testing for safety-sensitive aviation employees. This includes pilots, flight attendants, aircraft dispatchers, maintenance personnel, and security staff, to name a few.

The FAA drug testing program, as outlined in 49 CFR Part 40 and Part 120 requires five-panel drug testing for marijuana, cocaine, opiates, amphetamines, and phencyclidine (PCP). FAA-regulated employers are required to conduct drug tests pre-employment, randomly, when there is reasonable suspicion, post-accident, as part of return-to-duty process, and follow-up.
