Look for an immediate downturn in general aviation. Especially in GA aircraft sales.
Kent Misegades says
The question to be asked here is obvious: what secrurity problems exist in GA today that TSA thinks it needs to “enhance”? When the government says they are going to “enhance” something, it generally means more rules and less freedom. TSA remains like so many other federal agencies, a solution looking for a problem to solve that does not exist. It would be just behind the EPA on my long list of agencies and departments to shutter for good. Pay the Israeli government to handle airline security, and get out of the way of GA, a threat only to the agony of airline travel.
