Pilots…Guardians of General Aviation.
Beware evildoers. Airports have eyes! In fact airports have some of the best trained eyes when it comes to their pilots. “Pilots learn to see how they and their aircraft fit into the total environment…considering weather, wind, air and ground traffic, and regulations. That’s a pretty big picture,” says Planehook Aviation Services founder Dave Hook. “Getting pilots to apply that same perspective on the ground at their airport is not such a big step. We just get them to apply that same flying situational awareness to ground security, both inside and outside of the airport fence,” he added.
Advising general aviation airports on how to make the most of what they have is the cornerstone in Planehook’s approach to security. While billions of US taxpayer dollars have gone into airport security since 9/11, the recipients have mostly been large, commercial service airports. “Planehook focuses on low-cost solutions that fit within the constraints of the general aviation airport’s budget,” stressed Mr. Hook. The first step in any security solution is recognizing a potential threat. He continued, “People have to be willing to admit, ‘You know, it could happen here.’”
Airport awareness is but one of many solutions that go straight to the heart of repelling criminals and terrorists from our airports. “Planehook provides its clients with multiple methods to keep their airfields more secure…and not just for fixed-wing airfields; heliports find good value in our methods as well,” furthered Planehook’s senior officer. Using multiple layers of security to create synergy, Planehook’s clients are more likely to discourage criminals and terrorists.
Dedicated to the needs of general aviation, Planehook Aviation Services, LLC began providing its unique version of security in December 2004. The company motto, “Securing aviation one airport at a time,” underscores their approach. The company website, http://www.planehook.com, provides further information on their refreshingly low-tech, low-cost approach to what is normally an expensive industry.
