The program started back after 9/11 that allows pilots to carry in the airport/cockpit. I've looked on some aviation forums and they all act like it's some secret, or maybe they just don't want to draw attention to it since it's been under fire recently (and lose the privileged). Such as here

I understand you have to pay for all your own training and such but when does someone become eligible for this? Commercial? ATP?

121 airline only.

You do it on your days off and pay your own way down there.  I plan on doing it just to become a better shot.

I have my M4 and M9 on every flight.
750+ rounds of 556, 105 rounds of 9mm.
And a folding stretcher.

The single most effective thing done to prevent another 911 event....and it was a very small fraction of the money spent on protecting the flying public.  

As far as keeping it secret, well, we have a lot of procedures that we don't talk about and haven't talked about publicly for decades.  Why give away details on anti-terrorist/hijacking information?  We have much more important things to talk about anyway...like fast cars and pussy.

Just remember to land the plane while you're up there shooting the shit.

I completed the training and was active for 2 years before I quit my airline pilot job and went to the corporate side.

I was very sad the day I had to send my weapon and credentials back.....excellent training, however.  

As far as paying for your training, it ended up costing me 126 bucks for 7 days of intensive first rate firearms and hand to hand trainging plus 3 meals a day all you could eat at a great on-site cafateria......I would do it again in a heart beat.

Show 'em your credentials that say you're a FEDERAL officer, have a nice day. Same in CHI, SFO, LAX ETC.
Oh, and New Jersey can't confiscate your hollow points.
