  • TSA launches Known Crewmember at Salt Lake airport
    The Transportation Security Administration recently expanded its Known Crewmember program to Salt Lake City International Airport. Pilots for Delta Air Lines, SkyWest Airlines, United Airlines and Frontier Airlines may participate.

    Republican lawmakers are arguing in favor of contract towers for air-traffic control at smaller airports, pointing to a study by the inspector general for the Department of Transportation.
