We just got notified at HTS that GA pilots have to be given a security clearance to get to your airplane...fingerprints and all. The cost to each person is $60; a complete waste that of course has generated howls of protest and the demand to see just who and where this is coming from. More to come later as the lunacy evolves.
On the other hand, GA is missing a wonderful opportunity here with the current security screening - can you just imagine the commercial where the guy standing in line waiting to be groped by a rental cop morphs into someone happily flying a new GA airplane?
