Group Gives TSA Recommendations on Airport Security


A coalition of general aviation associations established as a working group of the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) Aviation Security Advisory Committee has delivered a series of recommendations for enhancing security at general aviation airports.

Among the recommendations are improving airport surveillance , tighter identification of passengers flying on private planes and closer monitoring of student pilots. TSA will build on the recommendations to establish formal guidelines that general aviation airports can follow to further strengthen security. By early next year, TSA will issue “best practice” guidelines for security at more than 18,000 facilities nationwide.

The working group also recommended multiple locking systems to keep unauthorized persons from gaining access to aircraft, as well as fencing, locks, lighting and other steps to control access onto aircraft ramps, parking, hangar and fuel storage areas.
