FAA instructs flight service controllers to tell pilots about TSA alertFAA instructs flight service controllers to tell pilots about TSA alert

The FAA is taking steps to make sure pilots are aware of the Transportation Security Administration security alert issued last Friday evening. That alert simply restated previous alerts and asked the aviation community to "observe good physical security for aircraft and facilities and be continuously alert for suspicious persons, activities, and operations around airports." The FAA Air Traffic Division has sent a general notice to all 653 of its air traffic facilities, asking that air traffic controllers and FSS briefers reiterate the TSA alert to pilots. The TSA warning is now transmitted as part of a DUAT briefing. Pilots who have previously received the TSA security alert may advise the flight service briefer that they have the alert and can forego that particular portion of the briefing.
