Transportation Security Administration (TSA)

TSA’s mission is to “protect the nation’s transportation systems to ensure freedom of movement for people and commerce.” NATA participates on the Aviation Security Advisory Committee (ASAC) along with other government/industry members that provides advice on security matters to the TSA administrator. As a member of the ASAC General Aviation Working Group, NATA provides input on matters such as the Alien Flight Student Program (AFSP), Twelve-Five Standard Security Program (TFSSP), Private Charter Standard Security Program (PCSSP), DCA Access Standard Security Program (DASSP), and security guidelines for general aviation airport operators and users. NATA is also a member of the Insider Threat Subcommittee of the ASAC.  As such, NATA is part of the government-industry partnership developing an in-depth list of recommendations to TSA to improve insider threat mitigation programs and strategies.
