Since September 11, 2001, airport security has been raised in the United States. Most major airports had the National Guard posted at terminals and other parts of airports. Doing airport security checks, and taking over the screener jobs. Because of the events the occurred on 9/11, the FAA, Federal Airline Association, has been really strict on what people ca take with them on planes. They will not even allow people to take plastic knives or forks, because those can be considered a deadly weapon. The FAA has also made new regulations that affect everyone, everywhere, worldwide.
What changes have airports done to make it safe for others? What new regulations has the FAA passed? Is there and change of what you put in your luggage? What new security measures do the passengers have to go through? What new changes have been made to the Custom’s Department? Are the pilots complaining about their safety, and do they want to keep weapons in the cockpit?
Airport safeness is one of the major parts in the airport security. Passengers, workers, federal workers, and even the staff of the planes, have to feel safe at the airport that they are at. In order to do that, the airport security has to beef up their force and make sure that there is no threat in the airports. There have also been changes to secure air travel. On November 19, 2001, the President signed into a
law the Aviations and Transportation Security Act (ATSA), which among other things, established a new Transportation Security Administration (TSA) with in the Department of Transportation. This act established a series of challenging but critically important milestones toward achieving a secure air travel system. ATSA requires TSA to make a number of improvements to aviation security. The improvements include that by November 19, 2002, screening of individuals and property in the United States be conducted by TSA employees and companies under contract with TSA. ATSA requires enhanced qualifications, training, and testing of individual who perform screening functions. It requires that Federal law enforcement offices be present at the screening locations. Screening by TSA will make the certification of screening companies unnecessary. The FAA has changed some rules around and added more rules to make the airports and air travel safer. Here are some of the rules: Only passengers will be allowed in the barding area. No one without a ticket will be permitted where passengers prepare to board airplanes. No sharp objects will be allowed. This means passengers cannot have items such as Swiss Army Knives or small nail clippers on their key chains. There will be searches of all airplanes before passenger’s board, including cabins and cargo holds. There will be and increased use of bomb-sniffing dogs or explosive detection machines for checked baggage. Travelers will be subjected to random identity checks. No one but ticketed passengers will be permitted in the
boarding areas. No unauthorized vehicles will be parked within 300 feet of a terminal.
Luggage is one of the major facts about the airport security. The FAA has made new changes to the luggage rules to make it safer for others. Passengers are limited to one carry-one bag and one personal article such as a purse or a briefcase. The new rules takes effect immediately. In addition, passengers must be prepared to present local, state or federal government-issued identification card at the boarding gate, along with the boarding pass. In the past, passengers were required to show and ID at the ticket counter, but not at the gate.
Not only have the pilots been pushing to carry guns in light of terrorist attacks and threats, but the Association of Flight Attendants also has suggested that its 50,000 members have access to no lethal weapons such as stun guns, also known as tasers. The Airline Pilot\'s Association, which is the largest pilot\'s union, requested support from its members in helping to pass the bill that would allow guns in the cockpit. Many pilots feel that if the pilots are trained in the use of firearms and feel comfortable with using a gun, there is no reason why they should not be allowed to have a gun onboard.
The Air Line Pilots Association is urging Congress to pass
