TSA Proposes New Rules for General Aviation Security

On October 30, 2008, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) published its proposal for new security requirements on aircraft operators and airport operators engaged in general aviation.  According to TSA, the proposed rule would affect 10,000 aircraft operators flying 15,000 aircraft and 315 private and public airports.  The proposed security requirements are too numerous to summarize adequately.  Kaplan Kirsch & Rockwell has prepared a detailed summary of the proposed rule and its potential impacts.  Interested parties will have 60 days—until December 29, 2008—to submit comments.
