President Tom Poberezny was joined by Phil Boyer, president of the
Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA), at the EAA
AirVenture Museum in Oshkosh on Friday to videotape segments to be
included in the “AOPA Airport Watch” video being
distributed to EAA Chapters nationwide.
Both Poberezny and Boyer emphasized the vital role pilots play in
helping enhance security at their local airports. They asked pilots
to be particularly vigilant of their surroundings when they are at
the airport and report anything unusual. They also reiterated the
need to practice the highest levels of responsibility and
airmanship in their own flight planning and piloting skills.
“It takes all of us working together to ensure our flying
freedoms are maintained in the future,” Poberezny said.
“Since 9/11, there has been a lot of concern in government
about general aviation airport security. This program is one of the
important ways that pilots can participate in showing general
aviation is an asset, not a threat.
“It’s also why EAA continues working hard, often in
concert with groups such as AOPA, to make sure any necessary
security considerations do not hamper the ability for pilots to
enjoy the freedom of flight.”
The Airport Watch video will be distributed to EAA Chapters
along with information for members on how to fully participate in
