UFO Sightings by Commercial Airline Pilots

UFO Sightings by Commercial Airline Pilots

by Michael Ravnitzky ,

Journalists can obtain a set of UFO sightings by commercial airline pilots from the Federal Aviation Administration.  While the FAA Air Traffic Division indicates that, at the regional level at least, it does not maintain specific files on this subject, both the national and regional FAA offices can conduct a search of the Daily Record of Facility Operation Logs for portions of the airspace over specified states or cities or regions, to identify UFO incidents or sightings.  Requests should identify the time period of interest as well as the specific cities or counties or states of greatest interest, and should send the request to the applicable office.

Here are the national and regional contacts for convenience.  Letters should mention the Freedom of Information and provide some evidence that the requester is a journalist / news media representative, because otherwise search time could become expensive.
