"The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) proposes to amend current aviation transportation security regulations to expand the scope of current general aviation requirements and add new requirements for large aircraft operators and airports that service these aircraft. The proposed regulation would establish a security program called the Large Aircraft Security Program (LASP) for the large aircraft operators, and will require security threat assessments (STAs) for various categories of individuals. This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) is being conducted in conjunction with a Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM). This PIA will be updated to reflect any changes made prior to publication of the Final Rule. No information will be collected by TSA prior to publication of the Final Rule. To date, the government's focus with regard to aviation security generally has been on air carriers and commercial operators which offer transportation for compensation or hire. These carriers or commercial operators are required to submit to TSA security threat assessments (STA) and security programs prior to operating their aircraft. With a few exceptions, TSA does not currently require security threat assessments or security programs for general aviation aircraft operators, that is, individuals who are not offering transportation for compensation or hire."
