Composed of security professionals and representatives from all facets of business aviation, the NBAA Security Council provides the Membership with advice and guidance on matters relating to business aviation security.

The NBAA Security Council was created following September 11, 2001, to maintain and protect airspace and airport access in today’s environment of heightened security, to establish and communicate business aviation security best practices and to ensure the safety and security of business aviation aircraft and passengers. It develops and maintains a security best practices document and maintains the security section of the NBAA Management Guide, a reference designed to assist existing corporate aviation departments with their operational, maintenance and administrative requirements and to provide useful guidance for establishing and operating a flight department.

NBAA works with the Security Council to improve its participation in the government security dialogue and gain government approval of corporate aviation security practices. The Council provides assistance to the Staff, Board of Directors and Membership in the form of in-depth assessments and analyses of its area of purpose based on changing industry conditions and Member expectations.
