AOPA formally unveiled its Airport Watch program to enhance general aviation airport security March 4 in Washington, D.C., during a press conference attended by the major national news media.
Designed to enhance security at general aviation airports, AOPA's Airport Watch is patterned after the highly successful neighborhood watch anti-crime programs, which call on community members to note and report suspicious activity. Some 700,000 pilots and airport workers are being asked to participate in Airport Watch programs at 5,000 GA airports.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and AOPA have partnered to deploy this national security-enhancement program. AOPA has funded and distributed a wide range of educational materials, while TSA is providing the national, toll-free security hotline, 1-866-GA-SECURE.
