June 2018 Edition

2018 Airshow Edition

Tired of going to airshows only to get poor seating, bug bites, luke warm adult beverages, and a sunburn? We take that all away! Swing in your hammock or curl up in your easy chair--we give you front row center seating at the 2018 Wings Over South Texas Airshow at NAS Kingsville. Using a 360-degree video camera, we give you a first-person experience. All you do is provide your favorite snacks and beverage to make for an enjoyable airshow experience.

We continue our flight instructor series and examine the risk versus reward for teaching student pilots to fly airport-to-airport instead of the typical straight line between departure and destination. Our staff flight instructor examines the economics of reducing student risk of flying outside of gliding distance to an airport during solo cross country flights. 

Most have heard of $100 hamburger flights. But in Texas, barbeque is king. We look for fields with on-airport cafes or nearby restaurants with BBQ good enough to make a pilot land. Hungry yet?

Professional drone flyers! Are you coming up on the end of your first 24 months of currency? Our remote pilot explains how to keep current for the next 24 months.

Aleca King, our intrepid staff flight attendant, is on summer sabatical. We republish her amazing poem "From the World I've Learned."

All this and more within the virtual pages of the June 2018 edition of General Aviation Security!

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.
