Limits on Block Aircraft Registration Program Take Effect

If you’ve been relying on the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Block Aircraft Registration Request (BARR) program to protect the privacy of your aircraft movements, you should know that the government’s plan to limit that program took effect August 2. The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) and the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association are challenging the limits in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, but for the time being, aircraft operators who want to opt out of having their flight details disseminated must apply to the FAA and demonstrate a “valid security concern.” The NBAA said current BARR participants should continue to send the association requests to add or delete tail numbers in anticipation of BARR being reinstated.
