…AOPA Pledges To Help


Kaye said the congressman is not particularly worried about the practical implications of such a bill. He said it would be easy for the Transportation Security Administration to distribute their watch list to small aircraft operators. As for the physical screening of passengers and baggage, he said such measures are accepted as necessary. “For better or for worse, people are getting used to it,” he said. AOPA spokesman Chris Dancy said his organization is willing to help Weiner modify his bill. “We’d like to work with Congressman Weiner to develop legislation that addresses his concerns but isn’t a detriment to general aviation.” Dancy said Weiner had obviously heard the concerns of the GA community. “We were pleased to hear him recognize that the original legislation was too broad.”
