FAA Security Training Announced

FAA ANNOUNCES PLAN FOR NEW SECURITY-RELATED TRAINING
The airspace around Washington, D.C., is undeniably complex. And
security
TFRs can pop up anywhere. But with recent incursions leading to the
evacuation of the Capitol and White House, lawmakers are unwilling to
settle for the status quo. That's why AOPA has invested hundreds of
hours
in working to turn their focus from onerous mandates and harsh
punishments
to education. Today, those efforts received a boost when the FAA
announced
a new training program during a security hearing before the House
Committee on Government Reform. The proposal will require pilots
nationwide to complete a restricted-airspace awareness training
program,
such as the AOPA Air Safety Foundation's "Know Before You Go" online
course or an FAA safety seminar. Pilots would need to make a logbook
endorsement and would receive a completion certificate that they'd be
required to carry with them during flights into the ADIZ. Pilots within
100 miles of the ADIZ would have 30 days to comply, while pilots
elsewhere
would be given 120 days. "This kind of approach is far more reasonable
than some of the reactionary proposals we've heard recently," Boyer
said.
"It just makes sense to educate pilots so they can avoid making a
mistake."

I hope it'll be free!!
