Primary database is maintained at the Naval Air Systems Command (Code AIR 3.6.2.3), 47056 Mcleod Road, Building 447, Patuxent River, MD 20670-21626.

Secondary database is maintained at the Naval Safety Center, 375 A Street, Norfolk, VA 23511-4399. Local databases are maintained at Navy and Marine Corps aviation activities.

Categories of Individuals Covered by the System:

All aeronautically designated commissioned Navy and Marine Corps Officers and enlisted members assigned as aircrew members in the operation of an aircraft in accordance with the direction of competent authority.

Categories of Records in the System:

Reports of each flight submitted to the custodian of the aircraft. Records contain personal identification (name, rank, Social Security Number), and specific technical data related to the flight of naval aircraft.

Authority for Maintenance of the System:

10 U.S.C. 5013, Secretary of the Navy; 10 U.S.C. 5041, Headquarters, Marine Corps; and E.O. 9397 (SSN).

Purpose(s):

Naval Flight Record Subsystem consolidates the collection of naval flight data into a single, locally controlled collection and correction system, and implements a standard data collection source document (the Naval Flight Record OPNAV 3710/4) throughout the Navy and Marine Corps. It further establishes a single control database containing all naval flight data.

Routine Uses of Records Maintained in the System, Including Categories of Users and the Purposes of Such Uses:

In addition to those disclosures generally permitted under 5 U.S.C. 552a(b) of the Privacy Act, these records or information contained therein may specifically be disclosed outside the DoD as a routine use pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(b)(3) as follows:

The DoD ‘Blanket Routine Uses’ that appear at the beginning of the Navy's Start Printed Page 8187compilation of systems of records notices apply to this system.

Policies and practices for storing, retrieving, accessing, retaining, and disposing of records in the system:

Storage:

Automated records.

Retrievability:

Individual records are primarily retrieved by a unique document number assigned to each naval flight record. Additionally, each of the data elements such as pilots' Social Security Number, model aircraft and squadron may be used to retrieve individual records.

Safeguards:

Automated records are password protected and access limited to personnel with an official need to know.

Retention and disposal:

Primary and secondary database at the Naval Safety Center are permanent. Records in the secondary database at Headquarters, U.S. Marine Corps are erased from tape when the individual is removed from active flight status. Local databases purge all magnetic tape records after six months.

System manager(s) and address:

Commander, Naval Air Systems Command (AIR 3.6.2.3), 47056 Mcleod Road, Building 447, Patuxent River, MD 20670-1626.
