General Aviation Security Course
Initial and Recurrent Flight School Security Awareness Training:
For those employees employed by the flight school as of Jan. 18, 2005, initial training must have been completed no later than Jan. 18, 2005. For employees hired after Jan. 18, 2005, initial training must be completed no later than 60 days after the date of hire. Recurrent training must be provided to employees each year in the same month as the month they received initial training.
TSA and the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) have collaborated to create an online General Aviation Security course which may be used for initial and recurrent flight school security awareness training. This training is more specific, engaging, and realistic than the previous TSA Flight School Security Awareness Training. If used solely for the Recurrent Security Awareness Training course, completion will require review of the following additional two items:
- Any new security measures or procedures implemented by the flight school; and
- Any security incidents at the flight school and any lessons learned as a result of such incidents.
