How LASP Might Work

 - October 27, 2008, 12:19 PM

Here is how one charter operator describes complying with the Twelve-Five Standard Security Program, which shares many elements with the TSA’s proposed Large Aircraft Security Program. Note that under the proposed rule, operators will not have access
to the no-fly list but will have to pay a third-party provider to check passenger names against the list.
• Once per day before every trip, I log on to the TSA Web site and download the no-fly list in an Excel spreadsheet. I open the file and then, using the “edit, find” feature, type in the name of each crewmember and passenger.
• If the name appears on the no-fly list (exactly) I further check that person’s name against their date of birth to confirm their identity. If I confirm the passenger is on the no-fly list, that person is not allowed to board the aircraft and has to be reported to the TSA.  
• If passengers are added to a leg or two of the trip, before those additional passengers board the aircraft their names have to be checked with the no-fly list.
• The PIC must check passengers’ government-issued IDs to verify their identity.
• Records have to be kept for one year for each trip. We write the TSA no-fly number on our daily trip log and another document with the passenger list and crew list.     n硸
