Audit Reports


Review of Security at Aircraft Repair Stations

Project ID

As part of our larger audit of air carriers’ use of aircraft repair stations, we reviewed security controls at these stations. Our audit disclosed security vulnerabilities at repair stations located at commercial and general-aviation airports and off airport property. We recommended that TSA conduct risk-based security assessments as a first step in determining the actions needed to address repair-station security. This report contains sensitive security information, and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security will determine if any portions are publicly released.
