November 2015 Edition

Lasers, Leaves, and UAVs

We cover these topics and more in our November 2015 of General Aviation Security.  Legal writer Wendy Mia Pardew, Esq. examines the issues and pilot responses for ground lasers dazzling aircrews in flight. Corporate flight attendant Aleca King provides suggestions for dealing with holiday stress in "Letting Go Like a Leaf in the Fall." Bill Shepard, new Red Tails Squadron leader and P-51C pilot, tells us about his CAF squadron, the Tuskegee Airmen, and the Rise Above program. We also examine the tactical use of small UAVs by law enforcement.

Now in our sixth year of publication, we humbly thank our readers for their support.  Happy Holidays!


Special Microbook July 2015 Edition:

Learn Aeronautical Decision Making for flying sUAVs.  Flying an unmanned aircraft may sound like it's the same as manned aviation, but it's not!  The decision models and processes are more time compressed.  What's more, drone flyers accomplish those dirty, dull, and dangerous missions, making them swim in the deep end of the risk pool.  Learn more.  Read General Aviation Security Magazine's Aeronautical Decision Making for sUAS Operators, a special microbook edition for July 2015.

Aviation Risk Assessment
The foundation of any aviation security program
Objective results, not subjective speculation, that's what Planehook provides our clients. We take a systems engineering approach to risk assessments. The results...assessments that help our clients see where they can get the most security per dollar spent. This professional approach to security helps our clients justify to their corporate boards and shareholders, county/parish commissioners, city councils, and airport boards why any funds should be used for security.How does Planehook do this? We provide objective risk assessments by accomplishing for our clients...
  • Asset consequence analysis
  • Threat and tactics analysis
  • Vulnerability analysis

Combining the results of these three analyses into an overall risk assessment provides our clients with a clear picture of... 

  • What assets of consequence are at greatest risk
  • From whom or what these assets are at risk
  • What are the exploitable vulnerabilities of these assets
Using this approach Planehook creates a clear, objective assessment of the aviation risk. This approach in turn aids our clients in creating the Return-on-Investment justification for spending ANY funds for security. That's good, objective business.
It's how we help our clients keep their
security costs contained.
