July 7, 2011 – The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has appointed Kerwin Wilson as acting general manager for GA, succeeding Brian Delauter, who resigned this past May. Wilson, current assistant general manager in the Office of Transportation Sector Network Management’s (TSNM) General Aviation Office, will serve until recruitment efforts are completed for a permanent general manager.
In his current capacity Wilson provides leadership and technical oversight into overall policy, long-range GA objectives, and programs such as the Private Charter Standard Security Program, Twelve-Five Standard Security Program, Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) Access Standard Security Program, and the “Maryland Three” GA airports.
Wilson has been involved in the following programs: the Large Aircraft Security Program Supplemental Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, GA Outreach Program, GA Principal Security Specialists Branch, Airspace Coordination Branch, and the GA Airport Assessment Survey.
Wilson will attend AirVenture along with staff members, who will man their exhibit booth in the Federal Pavilion.
A veteran United States Air Force officer, Wilson has more than 20 years experience in air traffic control and airport management with a background in airspace security, airport security, and formulating aviation policy and procedures with various governmental agencies and foreign countries.
“I look forward to continuing my successful relationship with the GA community, to include aviation association partners, airport managers, fixed-base operators, and GA pilots,” he said. “The success of general aviation is our main priority.”
