The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is in the process of contacting air taxi operators regulated by the Twelve-Five Standard Security Program (TFSSP) to conduct security inspections. TSA principal security inspectors (PSIs) will hold interviews with aircraft operator security coordinators and review the procedures employed to check passengers. Operators must also present documentation for required training and the criminal history records check (CHRC). According to the TSA, “The purpose of the initial inspections is to ensure operators are complying with their TSA-approved security programs and to correct minor deficiencies when, in the opinion of the lead PSI, operators have made a good-faith attempt to comply.”
