I do agree that some of these new anti-terrorism procedures can be quite intrusive. Private strip owners will actually be doing themselves a favour by volunteering information to the bill. Unfortunately, most authorities seem to be obsessed with asserting their "authority".
The recent spotter police initiative is a good example. After 9/11 most spotters saw that they faced severe disruptions to their hobby and offered to help the authorities. Very smart move. I think GA can take a leaf from that. Unfortunately, Private flying is an exclusive club .
