The Obama Administration has notified the National Business Aviation Association that it will continue to have a seat on the Transportation Security Administration’s Aviation Security Advisory Committee (ASAC), along with 24 other industry groups. “In previous administrations, TSA officials have valued ASAC in helping address a number of general aviation security issues,” said NBAA vice president for safety, security and regulation Doug Carr. “We are pleased that the current leadership at the TSA and [the Department of Homeland Security] intends to continue including a business aviation representative on the ASAC, and we are confident that federal security officials will benefit from the group’s expertise and experience.”

“When you get into the larger aircraft it becomes like a hotel, with dozens of staff supporting the plane based in a galley area down below. You have very comprehensive cooking facilities, and on larger aircraft we have looked at theatres, with spiral staircases and a Steinway grand piano. The limitations for what you can put inside a plane are pretty much the limits of physics, and even money cannot always overcome that. Even so, people are still always trying to push [the limits]. ”
