AOPA President Phil Boyer tapes some of
the final segments for the Airport Watch
video at Orlando (Florida) Executive
Airport and Showalter Flying Service.

An AOPA crew spent this weekend shooting the final scenes for the new AOPA's Airport Watch video. The video will be available for distribution to pilot groups and airport organizations in January. The video is just one part of AOPA's comprehensive Airport Watch program, which is modeled after a neighborhood watch and is designed to enlist the aid of some 600,000 general aviation pilots to watch for suspicious activities at airports that might be a terrorist threat.

The video, produced in consultation with the Transportation Security Administration and other law enforcement agencies, dramatizes some of the things pilots should watch for and report to the police or to the national toll-free security hotline—866/GA-SECURE (866/427-3287).

An Airport Watch brochure will be mailed to all AOPA members this month. (The brochure is already available on the Web.)
