Europe delays Frax security ruling

The European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) has deferred proposed security requirements for fractional ownership flights operating into Europe. ECAC discussed the issue at a meeting early last month, but at press time a spokesperson reported that no final decision had been reached. The DOT has proposed that Europe adopt the twelve-five standard security program required for U.S. air-taxi aircraft that have mtows of more than 12,500 pounds. Europe’s existing security requirements apply to aircraft with mtows of more than 22,045 pounds or having more than 19 passenger seats.
