Saracini Aviation Safety Act is introduced in Senate

Today, Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) introduced a Senate counterpart to the Saracini Aviation Safety Act.  The bill was introduced in the House earlier this summer.  This important legislation requires the installation of secondary barriers on commercial aircraft, and is named in honor of ALPA member Capt. Victor Saracini, who was killed when terrorists hijacked United flight 175 on September 11, 2001.  While voluntary airline industry movement toward adopting secondary barriers began in 2003, commitment to deploying these devices has since waned.  The Saracini Aviation Safety Act of 2013 simply fulfills Congress’s intent from more than a decade ago to make cockpits more secure.

Tell Congress to support this bill here!
