There’s a lot of attention being given to commercial airports regarding security. At TSA, we recognize that General Aviation plays a major role in the industry, accounting for more than 75% of all air traffic in the U.S. That’s why we need our general aviation partners to be on watch, every minute of every day. We cannot let our planes get into the wrong hands, so we cannot overlook any unusual activity or behavior. As history has shown, general aviation aircraft can be a threat if put in the wrong hands. The thing is, people who intend to do hard could come in all forms. They could pose as pilots, mechanics, or even passengers. But the danger is easy to spot if we stop, look, and listen. I’m an aircraft mechanic and general aviation security is up to me. Leaving your plane? Lock it and leave it. We must use our most powerful defense against any threat, and that defense is each one of us. I work at this airport and general aviation security is up to me. Anyone could enter an open gate--an innocent bystander, or not? That’s why I don’t leave until it’s shut. I’m a flight instructor, and general aviation security is up to me. I listen to what my student is asking. If I hear any strange questions about flight plans or see any unusual behavior in my students, that’s a red flag. I’m a line service worker and general aviation security is up to me. I’m paying attention to that guy over there near the plane. If something doesn’t look right, I don’t ignore it. Please stop, look, and listen, because general aviation security is up to you. Whether you fly, fuel, or hang out at the hangar, we all share this responsibility and if we work together as a team, we strengthen general aviation security and everyone benefits. I’m a captain and general aviation security is up to me. If I see any unusual activity, I report it. When I see someone who doesn’t seem to belong, I’m on it. Whether you fly, fuel or hang out at the hanger …we all share this responsibility… and if we work together as a team … we strengthen general aviation security and everyone benefits.
