TSA Withdraws Large Aircraft Security Rule Proposal


The Transportation Security Administration recently officially withdrew a proposed rule that would have imposed new, onerous and largely unworkable security regulations on general aviation. It would have added requirements for all operators of aircraft weighing more than 12,500 pounds, as well as for airports that serve those operators. "NBAA has a long history of working effectively to identify ways to facilitate and enhance both security and access for general aviation, but it's clear that the LASP proposal was not a workable program," said NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen. .

3 Things to Know About NBAA's Ethics Statement


NBAA recently published "Ethical Business Aviation Transactions," a resource outlining best practices for ethical transactions involving business aircraft products and services.

"Company policies may deal with broader ethical concerns, like bribery or use of company resources, so the NBAA statement is not designed to supersede previously written ethics policies." Instead, the ethics statement should be seen as a general statement of industry best practices. Read more here:: 3 Things to Know About NBAA's Ethics Statement… Read more ...
