Air Carrier Items Taken Onboard Aircraft

Dec 11, 2015


Air carrier items are taken onboard commercial aircraft on a daily basis. It is therefore necessary to have appropriate procedures in place to ensure that these items have been subjected to screening or other security controls. The lack of such procedures may place the pilot-in-command in the difficult position of making a judgment call on whether to accept these items or not, sometimes without even knowing their nature or content.

This situation is clearly unacceptable.
