TSA Security Requirements
Include General Aviation
TSA scales its security strategy to the wide range of airfield environments and classes of operators and aircraft, rather than introducing overly broad regulations that are costly to implement. TSA works closely with the many associations of GA owners and operators to implement voluntary security measures based on threat analysis and risk management. In addition, TSA has introduced voluntary guidelines that are being used throughout the GA community, and has developed several programs targeted at the most vulnerable GA sectors, such as the Twelve-Five Standard Security Program that requires additional security for charter aircraft weighing between 12,500 and 103,309 pounds, and the Maryland- Three Program to reduce the perceived threats posed by GA airports in the vicinity of Washington, DC. TSA has also evaluated the effect of its security initiatives on the GA industry and, where applicable, its effect on modeling international industry best practices and security measures.8 A complete list of TSA’s security requirements is provided in appendix B.
