News, observations, and a personal note while on an adjusted itinerary...

John F. InfangerBy John F. Infanger

January 2002

Ran into Jeff Gilley, NBAA’s airport liaison, at the National Airports Conference in Tucson and again at NBAA in New Orleans. He’s been active, taking part in security initiatives with AAAE and NATA (and, of course, the federal government). Says he’s "impressed" with security initiatives undertaken by fixed base operators.
At the NAC, Gilley joined Morristown (NJ) Municipal director Bill Barkhauer and others to discuss the activities of the newly formed General Aviation Airports Security Task Force put together by AAAE. Bill is chair of the group, a past AAAE board member, and directs one of the busier business aviation airports in the U.S., not far from New York City.
The target of the task force: a heightened level of security at smaller airports that takes into account reasonableness.
