CFI Responsibility to TSA Notice Number: NOTC3989

With the recent publicity about individuals being on the “Do Not Fly List” and receiving Flight Instruction, we want to remind CFIs that they have certain responsibilities to fulfill before instructing a non-US citizen. This notice is to remind Flight Instructors of their responsibilities under the Code of Federal Regulations to notify the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) when providing flight instruction to foreign pilots.

TSA Planning to Inspect Maintenance Shops

TSA Planning to Inspect Shops that Repair Jets
Thousands of airplane maintenance shops would get increased scrutiny to make sure they are not easy prey for terrorists looking to sabotage U.S. jets during routine repairs, according to a story in USA Today, which notes:

“Some experts and lawmakers have warned for years about potential terrorist saboteurs infiltrating airplane repair shops, and have urged security oversight. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) says the greatest danger is posed by repair shops that are on or next to airports because a terrorist could take control of an airplane.”

Editor’s Note: It appears that TSA is a bureaucracy which can do anything it wants and that USA Today continues to distort the facts to sell papers.
