What is the difference between the security procedure for those flying private jets and the security procedure for those flying commercial?
Answer by Thomas Zerbarini:
Let me simply say that you are being watched. Some areas more than others.
It would be bad form to discuss security procedures for our transportation system. It is held on a need to know basis just as any security protocol would be in today's environment.
I would stick to research on the available public government documents via the internet to find answers to your questions there. I would keep your curiosity limited to traveler information:
and, Tom's reference to Security Guidelines for General Aviation Airports
The TSA mission and vision are very clear. Protect the Nation's transportation systems to ensure freedom of movement for people and commerce. Provide the most effective transportation security in the most efficient way as a high performing counterterrorism organization.
As you can see, the TSA is a counterterrorism organization with vast resources at its disposal. Even though it can be frustrating at times to deal with, I very glad we have them there to protect our aviation infrastructure.
