Pilots Get the All-Clear to Avoid Body Scans

Posted By on Fri, Nov 19, 2010 at 6:12 PM

Late Friday, The Transportation Security Administration agreed to let uniformed airline pilots skip the controversial body scans and aggressive pat-downs at the Boise Airport and commercial airports across the nation.

The change comes in the wake of a firestorm from pilots, airline attendants and passengers, all upset over the TSA's ramped up security.

In this week's BW, we talk to the TSA and we learned that in spite of the new measures at commercial airports, feds don't mandate security for general aviation aircraft, which represents three of every four planes in the skies.
