TSA Screening Procedures for Private Flights


Posted on October 12, 2006

By Greg Raiff


The U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has changed security screening procedures for airports, by monitoring carry-on liquids and gels aboard all Commercial Airline flights. With a few exceptions, passengers are only allowed to carry on travel-sized toiletries of three ounces or less, if they are contained in one quart-sized clear plastic zip-top bag past the screening checkpoint or on-board a Commercial Airline.

When flying privately,  each trip is designed to be as convenient as possible while implementing the highest security standards set by TSA for Private Charter flights.  Chartered aircraft are flown when applicable from one private terminal/FBO to another where TSA screening requirements and procedures are designed for specificly for privately chartered flights, depending on the departing/arriving private aviation facility. Below is a list of personal items TSA is currently monitoring on scheduled Commerical Airline flights vs. a Single Entity Private Charter leaving flying from a FBO to FBO.

Wow! What an eclectic mix of Flash websites! I have to agree with others about the issue of SEO marketing with Flash, but you have to admit, these are very clever websites! Plus, it's fun to do something different. Flash is different and engaging, and you can't get these types of websites with HTML. Thanks for sharing!
