I was just wondering if anyone knew aboout anything I can print out from the FAA's website or some proof I can get that will let me prove that it is not illegal to take pictures of planes out on the tarmac? I heard it was technically not illegal to take pictures outside on the tarmac as long as there is no sercurity checkpoint around there. Can someone please give me some advice? Thanks!

If you are talking about out on the ramp remember that most airports consider that a "controlled" area. At general aviation places it is pretty loose, but if you are not an "authorised" person you can be asked to leave the tarmac/ramp areas. It is more of a liability issue than anything else. Kinda like the signs at the garage that say "Customers may not go beyond yellow line".

Once the "FAA Regulation" excuse proves fruitless, they'll just pulls something else out like "treaspassing" or something.

On my new business cards I have included on the bottom...
Phone TSA/FAA (800)255-1111 for photography inquiries
The TSA/FAA regulations do NOT prohibit aircraft photography.

I have a PDF scanned letter that I carry around with me from the FAA. I will be writing a request to get an updated letter since the letter I received that particularly addresses commercial aviation photography was sent to me pre-TSA regulations...when FAR 107/108 were still in effect.

Once again, I was chased away from Easterwood Airport (CLL) for "spotting" the International Space Station and Space Shuttle Atlantis as it flew over. I'm writing to the police chief to complain. I'm tired of being harrassed for practicing a perfectly legal hobby.

Send a "carbon copy" to your area supervisor also. The only way to get this type of harrassment stopped and understanding across is to make it a public 'record'...as in in-writing.
Please take the time to draft a well worded letter explaining the hobby and that the FAA regulations and the new TSA regulations in no way prohibit aviation photography/spotting (except in view of the screening/security areas).
