NBAA Explains Need For Business Aviation Flight Security to CNBC

April 9, 2010

In the wake of news reports from CNBC and others about federal programs to ensure the security of business aviation flights, NBAA was quick to point out that companies ask the FAA to "block" some business airplanes' flights from real-time view by the public for legitimate security reasons. In this clip, NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen also points out that "Companies use these airplanes to do things that can't be done on the commercial airlines. They're flying to cities without commercial airline service. They're doing three and four cities a day. They're moving products they can't take aboard an airliner. So there are a variety of reasons they're using these airplanes."
