The current program allows operators of business aircraft with privacy and industrial security concerns to request that their aircraft’s flights tracking data be blocked from public distribution. RILA believes that if the proposed modification is implemented, it will threaten the competiveness of U.S. companies and also pose a potential security risk to persons on board while failing to offer any discernable benefits.
