While it was apparent to the attendees that no decision had been made about implementing any specific solution, the TSA is considering a broad range of options to address general aviation security. Aviation Research Group (ARG/US) is being sued by Aviation charter Inc. (ACI), the Eden Prairie, Minnesota, operator of the King Air in which Paul Wellstone, his wife, daughter and associates died in a crash on October 25, 2002. INSET: B/CA Fast Five.
