DHS Enhancements to General Aviation Security...

U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano and Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Administrator John S. Pistole launched two major enhancements to general aviation security. This includes a general aviation component of DHS's nationwide "If You See Something, Say Something" campaign, and a streamlined system for vetting passengers and crew on general aviation aircraft entering and exiting the United States through a single, Department-wide process.

"This new component of "If You See Something, Say Something" will enable general aviation passengers and crew to better recognize and report behaviors and indicators associated with new and evolving threats," said Secretary Napolitano. "We are also transitioning to a streamlined system for vetting travelers on general aviation flights to and from the United States to provide a single, electronic screening process while maintaining robust security standards."

As part of the general aviation component of "If You See Something, Say Something," DHS is asking the public to report suspicious general activity to TSA's hotline at 1-866-GA-SECURE.
