Description

WTHR-TV reports on the "nonexistent security at the nation's general aviation airports." These are smaller but often heavily used airports, and they have a virtual open-door policy, the program reveals. The Federal Aviation administration (FAA) does not require a security program for such airports. The result: it is perfectly permissible to have gates left wide open, hangar doors not adequately secured, and planes within quick reach of anyone.
