AOPA’s Security Resources

AOPA's General Aviation TSA Security Awareness Online Course

GA Secutiry Course Since 9/11, the security of general aviation (GA) airports and aircraft has received some negative attention from the media. This course offers flight schools, aircraft owners, renter pilots, FBOs, and flying clubs practical guidelines to help enhance GA security.

Now more than ever, security has become part of general aviation on every level of flying or flight training. On this page, AOPA offers pilots an easy way to find the security resources they need for each portion of their flight and also offers information on AOPA’s advocacy efforts.
