  • TSA expands PreCheck to Delta travelers in Tampa
    The Transportation Security Administration launches its PreCheck program today at Florida’s Tampa International Airport. The program’s expedited security lines are open to Delta Air Lines travelers. "TSA [PreCheck] helps strengthen security by separating out low-risk individuals and those we can learn about through prescreening. We can then focus our resources on travelers about whom we know less," TSA spokeswoman Sari Koshetz said. The Tampa airport is the third Florida airport to participate in the program.

  • FAA rules, lack of resources strain aircraft makers, observers say
    The Federal Aviation Administration’s tight regulations and lack of resources are becoming a huge stumbling block for airplane manufacturers struggling to get their new products approved in a timely manner, this feature says. The amount of paperwork, time and effort needed to approve aviation products needs to be changed, manufacturers say. "They can’t continue to do the old way of doing it if they don’t have the resources," said Walter Desrosier of the General Aviation Manufacturers Association. Desrosier said the FAA should focus on "safety critical" areas instead. The Wichita Eagle (Kan.) (7/8) sm_share.gifLinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
