TSA Opens Comment Period On Aircraft Repair NPRM

TSA announced publication in the Federal Register of a Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM) to strengthen the Aircraft Repair Station Security program on Monday. The proposed rulemaking would establish security requirements for maintenance and repair work conducted on aircraft and aircraft components at domestic and foreign repair stations certificated by the FAA.
Editor’s Note: This is another example of the out of control TSA trying to expand its bureaucracy when another federal agency, the FAA, already has jurisdiction.The TSA should not be allowed to oversee any general aviation repair stations and add bureaucratic red tape and the huge costs that go along with it to these already economically fragile businesses.
