AOPA seeks more data on pilot detentions, inspections
July 2, 2013
Federal officials have yet to
respond to AOPA’s demand for information (and explanations) regarding
the increasingly frequent detention and search of law-abiding pilots by
agents of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Customs and Border
Protection—well inside the national borders.
AOPA continues to gather new reports from pilots with experiences similar to those first reported by AOPA Online in May. AOPA Manager of Aviation Security Tom Zecha said the online survey need not be fully completed to be useful, though the more data supplied, the better.
Zecha said he has heard positive feedback from members who appreciate the handy kneeboard-formatted checklist
with detailed recommendations on how to respond to ground inspection
and search demands (other than routine ramp checks conducted by FAA
staff). The checklist will be published as a tear-out insert in the
August issue of AOPA Pilot.
AOPA has yet to receive a response to a June 19 letter
to acting CBP Commissioner Thomas S. Winkowski that noted the agency’s
failure to respond to previous Freedom of Information requests within
the time frame required by law, and gave the agency until July 20 to
respond before the association pursues “other remedies.”
