TSA is backing off strict new security measures for general aviation following thousands of complaints from pilots and airport operators. Brian Delauter, the agency's manager for general aviation, says regulations will be revised with greater input from industry stakeholders. "We're going to be ten times more successful in partnership than ... being combative back and forth to each other," he tells NPR. Officials originally wanted the rules applied to airplanes that weighed about as much as two SUVs, but Delauter says TSA now intends to raise the weight limit significantly and make pilots more responsible for ensuring security on board their aircraft.
