Goal Statement:  Current intelligence trends provides an analysis that large amounts of illegal drugs and narcotics are smuggled into the United States aboard general aviation aircraft that are often operated to and from smaller remote airfields not equipped with dedicated interdiction resources.  The goal of this instructional unit is to provide an overview of conducting aircraft ramp check operations, and what documentation is required to be presented to law enforcement upon request. In addition, this training will enhance law enforcement’s ability to recognize illegal activities involving aircraft operations, suspect airmen, and other airport operations to appropriately assess the situation to determine what course of action is best suited based upon the crime, the threat, and/or the hazard.

UPON COMPLETION OF THIS INSTRUCTIONAL UNIT THE STUDENT WILL BE ABLE TO:

  1. Demonstrate the ability to recognize legal pilot and medical certificates, aircraft registration and airworthiness certificates.
  2. Properly conduct an aircraft ramp check inspection.
  3. Identify and properly use open source databases to verify the current status and validity of licenses and registration.
  4. Demonstrate a correct understanding of federal and state laws pertaining to aviation and ramp check authority within the appropriate jurisdictions.
