Office of Security Policy and Industry Engagement
The Office of Security Policy and Industry Engagement Aviation General Aviation Branch works closely with the 17 associations that make up the General Aviation Coalition to ensure security mandates are based on threat analysis and risk management, balanced with common sense. We recognize that one-size security does not fit all, and that different solutions are required for different environments and different classes of operators. We:
- Use a threat based, risk management approach to develop strategies, policies, and programs to reduce the security risks and vulnerabilities associated with GA operations;
- Recognize the diversity that exists in the industry and that "one size" security does not fit all stakeholders;
- Work collaboratively with stakeholders to develop creative methods to enhance security and develop, disseminate, and consistently apply a framework of appropriate federal security standards;
- Understand the global impact of TSA security initiatives, and, where applicable, harmonize with international industry best practices and security measures.
To reduce the security risks and vulnerabilities associated with General Aviation operations through a threat based, risk management approach.
