Is the flying safety record of the helicopter air ambulance industry getting better or worse?  Find out in our special section on EMS aviation.  Learn about flight paramedic Samantha Jones and how she transformed from being a soldier with a broken back to a medical savior with a zest for life. Legal writer Wendy Mia Pardew, Esq. examines the state of the NOTAM system in the US and asks,"Didn't the Pilots Bill of Right law require NOTAMs to be improved?" Corporate flight attendant Aleca King gives shares insights on life given to her by the VVIPs she has cared for. Professor Olja Cokorilo, Ph.D., of the University of Belgrade examines the state of search and rescue in Europe.

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.
