Following the September 11, 2001, multiple terrorist attacks against U.S. civil air carriers, involving the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the FAA is advising of the potential for follow-on terrorist attacks.
As we have done on several occasions in the past, the FAA is seeking your cooperation in helping to safeguard the air transportation system. We are raising the security posture at all Part 107 airports throughout the United States. We believe that it is prudent to inform airport and airfield operators of our concern. Accordingly, to help keep public and private airfields safe and secure during the foreseeable future, we need your help.
IF YOU ARE THE OWNER OR OPERATOR OF AN AIRFIELD PLEASE:
PERSONS INVOLVED IN OPERATING, SERVICING OR RENTING SMALL AIRCRAFT SHOULD BE ON THE LOOK-OUT FOR:
REMEMBER: If you see something highly dangerous, such as weapons or explosives, being loaded on an aircraft; or if you have other reason to believe that a serious crime or some sort of attack is about to occur, immediately call local law enforcement authorities!
