Washington, D.C., August 18, 2010 – Brian Delauter, Transportation Security Administration (TSA) General Manager, General Aviation, is confirmed to speak Monday, September 13 during the 2010 NASAO Annual Convention and Tradeshow in Wichita, Kansas.
Delauter (pictured at right) has an extensive general aviation background and knowledge of all aspects of general aviation including corporate and recreational aircraft operations, airports, airspace and airmen issues. He uses his extensive general aviation experience in government and private industry to lead TSA’s strategy to enhance security within the general aviation sector while reducing the risk of the misuse of General Aviation assets by developing identification capabilities including positive pilot and aircraft identification.
"We are delighted Brian Delauter is returning to address our conference this year," said NASAO President and CEO Henry Ogrodzinski. "The GA pilot perspective Brian brings to his role at TSA has been refreshing and welcomed. We look forward to hearing about the latest news on security issues facing the general aviation community."
This year’s convention theme, "Aviation 2020 & Beyond: A Clear Vision for the Future" reflects our focus on aviation growth and sustainability for the next generation. In addition to general sessions, NASAO is offering a specialized track designed for anyone at the local or state level involved with communicating the value of aviation or their airport to the community or media. Forums are tailored to provide simple and effective checklists and outreach tools participants can take home and use immediately.
