Federal Court: FAA Must Release Blocked N Numbers

Federal Courts told the FAA that no "N Numbers" can be blocked anymore:

Private aircraft operators cannot continue to have their N numbers blocked if the Federal Aviation Administration receives a Freedom of Information Act request for the numbers. In response to a FOIA request from the ProPublica Web site, a federal court ruled that the FAA must release the N numbers previously kept under wraps through the National Business Aviation Association's Blocked Aircraft Registration Request.

What does this mean for business travelers and corporations that want to keep their whereabouts a secret? And who will they have to release this information to?

DAL7e7 is wondering... Do pilots take crash courses?

They will do like mine does and use some random LLC or other entity based out of a PO Box or mail drop or some random company officer's address masked as the LLC.

Or go to Flight Aware and ask them to not report where the aircraft is. Makes it much harder to trace where it has been.

N1AP (Arnold Palmer) does this with his aircraft.

It does not affect the BARRing of real-time tracking information.
It just means that the FAA is required to provide the information in response to a properly constituted FOIA request.
