Thursday, December 8, 2011 - 9:30pm

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 I made the film The Invention of Lying, they gave me a private jet for getting back and forth between New York and London. I thought, ‘I will never use it’ but I ended up using it every weekend. You turn up, right, and the airport is completely empty. I mean, there’s just someone at the desk and then the pilot, who says, ‘Are you ready to go?’ and you say, ‘Don’t you want to see my passport?’ and he goes, ‘Oh yeah, I suppose I’d better.’” ”
