The main goal of enhancing GA airport security is to prevent the intentional
misuse of GA aircraft for terrorist purposes. Proper securing of aircraft is the
most basic method of enhancing GA airport security. Pilots should employ
multiple methods of securing their aircraft to make it as difficult as possible for an
unauthorized person to gain access to it.

Some basic methods of securing a GA aircraft include:

• Ensuring that door locks are consistently used to prevent unauthorized
access or tampering with the aircraft.
• Using keyed ignitions where appropriate.
• Storing the aircraft in a hangar, if available, and locking hangar doors.
• Using an auxiliary lock to further protect aircraft from unauthorized use.
Commercially available options for auxiliary locks include locks for
propellers, throttle, and tie-downs.
• Ensuring that aircraft ignition keys are not stored inside the aircraft.
