Securing Aircraft

Airport News

Recent attempts to steal ultralight aircraft again raise our awareness of the need to secure all aircraft when they are not being used.  Remember to remove keys and secure aircraft so they are a difficult target for theft.   Report any attempted theft to local law enforcement, as well as the Transportation Security Administration at 866-GA-SECURE (866-427-3283) and the Iowa DOT Office of Aviation at 515-239-1689.

More information on securing aircraft is available on the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association website at
