The departure this month of Brian Delauter, the Transportation Security Administration’s general manager of its general aviation branch, is raising questions about the fate of some key TSA initiatives affecting GA, such as the rewrite of the proposed Large Aircraft Security Program (LASP) and expansion of gateways at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA), according to a report at AviationWeek.com, which notes that Delauter is expected to leave the agency May 23 to take a corporate security position in the private sector in Nashville. Delauter, a pilot who understood GA, will be sorely missed by GA advocates, who say he brought a rare combination of GA experience and knowledge of the agency.
