Personalizing Your Message
- Personalize your message. The talking points listed in the regulatory brief are provided to give you a basis for starting your letter and comments. Use the four ideas in the brief as springboards to address how the proposed Large Aircraft Security Program (LASP) would impact your flying.
- Describe yourself as a pilot and how you use your aircraft. Include information about the type of aircraft you fly or own and about the airport where you are based.
- Describe how the proposed rule would adversely affect the way you fly. Include information about how the TSA’s proposed LASP would impact you. Describe any costs that you would incur should the proposed rule be passed. Describe any economic loss or job loss associated with the implementation of this rule.
- Describe why this rule is not necessary. Provide details. It is clear from the TSA’s request for information on 45 different aspects of the notice of proposed rulemaking that they don’t have the complete picture about the impact of the proposed rule on GA operators. To help them fully understand the operational effects of the proposal, please provide as many details as you can in your comments.
Sensitive security information reminder: Your comments will be part of a public record available for anyone to see. Do not disclose any information that is considered sensitive security information.
