AOPA responds to 'Washington Post' opinion articleAOPA responds to 'Washington Post' opinion article

AOPA responded immediately to an inaccurate and misguided opinion article calling for a "Clamp Down on General Aviation." In the September 25 Washington Post "op-ed" article filled with inaccuracies concerning general aviation operations, security consultant Joseph A. Kinney suggested that general aviation aircraft could easily be turned into weapons of mass destruction. AOPA President Phil Boyer responded, "As the United States examines initiatives to enhance security, the general aviation community wants to help and will add security measures where they will make a difference, not blindly where they will close businesses, hurt commerce, and further restrict travel."
