AOPA Offers Security Course
Targeting aircraft owners, renter pilots, flying clubs, flight schools and FBOs, AOPA has teamed with the TSA to create an online interactive course to help ensure the safety and security of aircraft and airports. The course acts as an extension of AOPA's Airport Watch program and "will meet TSA's Recurrent Security Awareness Training requirement for flight and ground instructors, flight school employees and FBOs who have direct contact with flight students." AOPA hopes these efforts help strike a balance that both fulfills national security needs and protects pilots from security-related incidents. Said AOPA president Phil Boyer, "All pilots have a responsibility to help ensure the safety and security of our airports and aircraft."
