A well constructed plan-do-check-act (PDCA) tool, in the context of a Safety Management System (SMS), and incorporating a structured field survey, can help students prepare for real-world problems, situations and crises in general aviation (GA) security by providing an actual professional environment to study. Thus, through the examination of an actual GA airport, students are given the opportunity to work issues through the trials, tribulations, experiences, and research findings of others. In this paper all the elements of GA airport security plan are analyzed at the collegiate level. It is suggested that this PDCA tool be implemented as a SMS model for the study of future airport security comes used in the collegiate environment.
