Revisions to aircraft and airport security rules–FAR Parts 107, 108 and 139–increase the number of aircraft operators that must have security programs to include all that enplane from or deplane into a sterile area and certain helicopter operators. This final rule expands the training requirements for aircraft operator security personnel and requires aircraft operators to participate in contingency exercises. While general aviation aircraft and FBOs are not intended to be covered by the aircraft operator rule (Part 108), they are covered as tenants under the revised airport security requirements of Parts 107 and 139. The revisions under these parts more clearly define the areas of the airport in which security interests are the most critical and where security measures should be the most stringent. Revisions become effective November 14.
