Aero-News Quote of the Day
"Quite simply, the Advisory presents an irresponsible
picture of the U.S. air charter and general aviation industry.
Further, it demonstrates the inability of government officials to
distinguish between private, non-commercial flight operations and
those of certificated commercial air charter operators subject to
TSA security regulations."

on the Department of Homeland Security's Advisory 03-019, "Security
Information for General Aviation Pilots/Airports."
