The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), along with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), issued a Notice intended to ensure that only properly registered aircraft operate within the National Airspace System (NAS). According to the FAA, efforts undertaken pursuant to this Notice will revitalize and refocus their airspace monitoring capabilities to ensure that each aircraft operating within the NAS has met all statutory, regulatory, and certification requirements.
Beginning February 1, 2006, “operators of identified aircraft with questionable registrations and or no TSA required security measures/waivers will be: (1) Notified of the deficiency, (2) a pilot deviation will be filed on the operator, (3) operator may be denied access to the NAS. In the event the operator is not the owner, the operator and owner will be notified of the deficiency and both will be subject to any action deemed warranted by the agency in accordance with local, state and federal regulations.”
