The first six Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Access Certificates (TSAACs) have been awarded to flight departments based at New Jersey's Teterboro airport. The operators, which included American International Aviation and Verizon, had completed training on the US National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) Security Protocol and received TSA approval to use those procedures for international flights as part of a trial security programme. The NBAA hopes that these and other TSAAC-approved business jet operators will have access to selected airspace affected by temporary flight restrictions.
