Feb. 25, 2004 - With only three days' notice, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has called a public meeting to gather ideas on how the agency should proceed in regulating foreign and domestic repair stations. This is the first time that TSA is proposing to regulate businesses located at general aviation airports. AOPA is concerned that the congressionally mandated repair station security measures may eventually become the model for regulating other general aviation airport businesses.
The meeting is scheduled for this Friday, Feb. 27, 2004, at 1 p.m. ET at the Drug Enforcement Administration in Arlington, Virginia.
Questions TSA will be asking at the public meeting:
TSA will use information presented at the public meeting to develop the notice of proposed rulemaking. The agency has a congressionally mandated deadline of August 8, 2004, to implement the new rule.
TSA expects its proposed security regulation will affect approximately 650 foreign repair stations that are certified by the FAA to repair aircraft that enter U.S. airspace and approximately 4,500 domestic repair facilities.
Anyone who cannot attend the meeting may submit written comments using the Department of Transportation's Docket Management System by March 29, 2004. Click on "Simple Search," then enter docket number 17131.
Details on the proposal, public meeting, and submitting comments are available online.
A state-of-the art medical facility on remote Tangier Island in the Chesapeake Bay serves as a lasting memorial to the late Dr. David B. Nichols’ dedication to providing medical care to the community for 30 years. Now, Nichols’ aviation legacy—flying a Cessna 182 or Robinson R44 to the island every Thursday to provide that care—is set in stone.
