…NBAA Offers Security Seminars In 2004


The NBAA has launched its own security initiative, including a series of seminars titled NBAA Security Training for Part 91 Operators, based upon the security project developed in partnership with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). The NBAA has already performed security-training seminars for Part 91 operators based at Teterboro (TEB), Westchester County (HPN) and Morristown (MMU) airports. These “Train-the-Trainer” sessions have given participants the materials necessary to train their companies’ employees to meet the standards needed to obtain a TSA Access Certificate (TSAAC), which eventually may grant TSAAC holders access to TFRs equivalent to that afforded scheduled air carriers. Although the TSA has not yet expanded the proof-of-concept security project to allow TSAAC applications from operators based outside of TEB, HPN and MMU, the TSAAC program may be launched nationally after the first of the year. The first two seminars will be held on Jan. 20, 2004, in Minneapolis, Minn., and Jan. 22 in Wichita, Kan. Attendance is limited to a maximum of three employees per company.
