TSA Large Aircraft Security Plan (LASP) is a NPRM set forth by TSA that will adversely affect business aviation operators with burdensome regulatory requirements. This proposed regulation, pertaining to aircraft weighing 12,500 lbs or more, would also affect general aviation airports, FBO's, maintenance and others close to general aviation during these rough economic times. See more at NBAA's latest press release on this critical subject: http://www.nbaa.org/news/pr/2009/20090123-013.php
Sending letters to our US Congressmen and Senators is a great way to show our disapproval of LASP. By clicking the provided link you can quickly send a letter to your US Senators and Congressmen. http://www.nbaa.org/advocacy/contact/?ISSUE=nbaa0024

There are several important legislative agendas such as user fees for general aviation and a change in jet fuel taxing procedures, which would negatively impact our industry. This website will guide you on how to generate e-mail or letters to our elected officials to be certain that our voices are heard. We need strong grassroots participation in the lobbying effort from everyone involved in business aviation.
Here is a sample letter which was sent to our Senator's Ben Nelson and Mike Johanns as well as our US Representative's Lee Terry, Jeff Fortenberry, and Adrian Smith to bring awareness of the economic challenges facing our regional NeBAA Business Aviation members during these tough economic times. Read the letter.
Senator Ben Nelson has responded to the letter which was sent out by the NeBAA Board. Read the letter (PDF).
The Nebraska Business Aviation Association works to enhance and promote the livelihood and safety of its members - pilots, flight attendants, schedulers, and maintenance crews within corporate aviation departments and other business aviation related businesses. By speaking as a unified voice on behalf of corporate aviation to organizations such as the legislature, the Nebraska Aeronautics Commission, National Business Aviation Association, and the Federal Aviation Administration, the association is better able to influence outcomes on matters affecting business aviation.
