NBAA Encourages Operators To Attend, Provide Feedback About Their CBP Experience
The NBAA is encouraging anyone who flies internationally and uses the services of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to attend a roundtable discussion at Kendall-Tamiami Airport (TMB) in Miami on September 13. The wide-ranging discussion, which will be hosted by the NBAA, AOPA, and NATA, will cover topics of vital interest to the general aviation community, including CBP’s requirements on notice of arrival procedures, GA processing and the operational differences between CBP installations at different airports around the country.
“CBP is going to talk about a number of topics at this meeting, and they want to hear back from users,” said NBAA Vice President for Safety, Security, Operations & Regulation Doug Carr. “This is a very unique and rare opportunity to foster a constructive dialogue about CBP policies and procedures at both the national and local levels.”
The roundtable discussion is free. There is no need to register, but participants must attend in person, because there will be no facilities for phone or email questions during the event.
The meeting will be held at the west hangar at Landmark Aviation, Kendall-Tamiami Airport (TMB). Among the CBP officials expected to attend are Eric Rodriguez, Program Manager, General Aviation; Ralph Modisette, National APIS Account Manager – General Aviation; ad Corrie Corbetis, National APIS Account Manager – Compliance and Enforcement.
Topics on the agenda at the roundtable include:
- General aviation processing
- Landing rights procedures
- Notice of arrival procedures
- Operational differences/similarities within Florida and the nation
- Industry’s partnership with government
- Current state of compliance and enforcement
- CBP’s next phase of compliance for general aviation
“Over the past several years, NBAA has worked in partnership with CBP to effectively address a number of general aviation issues, and we are looking forward to hearing about future efforts and opportunities to streamline CBP policies related to general aviation,” Carr said.
