The FAA's newly proposed limitation ignores the legitimate need for the Block Aircraft Registration Request (BARR) Program, and runs directly counter to long-established assumptions about government's role in the protection of privacy. Among the concerns held by NBAA and its Members are the following:
  • The proposal is fundamentally inconsistent with government’s long-established obligation to protect privacy, not to compromise it.
  • The FAA has failed to advance any affirmative public policy rationale for the proposal; the agency doesn't explain what problem it is trying to solve.
  • The proposed requirement to prove a “Valid Security Concern” establishes an unjustifiably high bar even to individuals and companies that do have legitimate security concerns.
  • The proposal utterly fails to acknowledge the vital interest that companies may have, beyond traditional notions of privacy, in blocking public access to information about their corporate flights.
  • The proposal, if implemented, would create a huge administrative burden to both operators/owners and the FAA without offering any discernible benefit.
