Apr. 14, 2004 - With weather improving and flight activity increasing across much of the country, now is a good time for pilots, FBO employees, and others who work at local airports to refamiliarize themselves with AOPA's Airport Watch program and pay extra attention to what's going on at the airport.
"It's vital that the general aviation community polices itself to secure our airports and make sure they are safe," said AOPA President Phil Boyer. "Watch for unusual or suspicious behavior. Listen for suspicious or inappropriate questions or conversations. And if something doesn't look or sound right, report it."
As part of the Airport Watch program, the Transportation Security Administration has established a nationwide toll-free hotline. It's 1-866/GA-SECURE (1-866/427-3287).
