Title: General Aviation Security and Other Aircraft Operator Security  

On October 30, 2008, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM), proposing to amend current aviation transportation security regulations to enhance the security of general aviation by expanding the scope of current requirements, and by adding new requirements for certain large aircraft operators and airports serving those aircraft.  TSA also proposed that all aircraft operations, including corporate and private charter operations, with aircraft having a maximum certificated takeoff weight (MTOW) above 12,500 pounds (large aircraft) be required to adopt a large aircraft security program.  TSA also proposed to require certain airports that serve large aircraft to adopt security programs.  TSA is considering publishing a supplemental NPRM (SNPRM) in response to comments received on the NPRM.
