Developed with the aid of a generous grant from the Wolf Aviation Fund.

Most of America’s rural and small town airports were built at a time when security and crime prevention were not issues.  Consequently, little or no effort was made to incorporate security precautions into their design.  This makes these facilities extremely vulnerable to modern criminals.  Fortunately, there are a variety of relatively simple and inexpensive steps that can be taken to increase the security of airport facilities. Following the suggestion in this manual won’t guarantee absolute security, but it will give you a head start in protecting your airport and its users.

The Rural & Small Town Airport Physical Security Manual & Checklist is available free of charge to airport managers, airport users, airport and pilot associations, educational institutions and others concerned with security at small airports.  The Rural & Small Town Airport Physical Security Manual & Checklist may be copied and reprinted as necessary provided that such copies give full credit to both the author and Wolf Aviation Fund and are not sold or otherwise used for commercial purposes.
