   Assembly Joint Resolution No. 29--Relative to flight training
schools.

    LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST

   AJR 29, as amended, Florez.  Flight training schools.
   This measure would memorialize the Congress of the United States to
instruct the Federal Aviation Administration to implement security
measures including, but not limited to, identification, fingerprinting,
and domestic and international background checks for students and
trainees at private or government operated flight training schools.
   Fiscal committee:  no.


   WHEREAS, The United States was attacked on September 11, 2001, by
terrorists who hijacked four commercial airliners and flew three of them
into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon to maximize the number of
innocent victim deaths; and
   WHEREAS, These terrorists took the lives of thousands of innocent
individuals; and
   WHEREAS, Investigations have revealed that some, if not all, of the
hijackers trained at flight training schools in the United States in
preparation for their terrorist attacks; and
   WHEREAS, There are a number of flight training schools in California
that provide training similar to that received by the above-mentioned
terrorists; and
   WHEREAS, The ability to pilot an aircraft gives the pilot an awesome
power over the lives of not only passengers but persons on the ground;
and
   WHEREAS, Currently, these flight schools are not required to do any
background checks, fingerprinting, or other confirmation of
identification, allowing literally anyone with sufficient money to
enroll in flight training; and
   WHEREAS, The events of September 11, 2001, reveal the need for
increased security in flight training schools to minimize the
possibility of a repeat of the horrendous attacks against buildings and
innocent civilians; now, therefore, be it
   Resolved by the Assembly and Senate of the State of California,
jointly, That the Legislature of California respectfully memorializes
the Congress of the United States to instruct the Federal Aviation
Administration to implement security measures including, but not limited
to, identification, fingerprinting, and domestic and international
background checks for students and trainees at private or government
operated flight training schools; and be it further
   Resolved, That the Chief Clerk of the Assembly transmit copies of
this resolution to the President and Vice President of the United
States, to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, and to each
Senator and Representative from California in the Congress of the United
States.
