A MESSAGE FROM USAIG

Are You Ready for
Back to Normal?
I was on a video call recently with
co-workers who'd mostly connected
from their homes. The company
headquarters is in its eleventh month
of pandemic-induced closure to full
activity, but one participant who had
reason to trek into the office that
day thoughtfully asked if there was
anything he could get or do for anyone
while he was there. Among the few
requests raised, someone asked if
anyone had been watering the plants.
Great question!

The week prior, I'd participated in a
session about organizational safety
culture on NBAA's VBACE. We'd
discussed the notion that 'e-aspects'
of our modern society might be
inadvertently dampening group
culture-building skills the way overreliance on aircraft automation can
impact manual flying skills. It's that old
law of unintended consequences that
comes calling. These advances aim
to make life better. Online learning,
electronic pass-down logs, e-checklists
that automatically timestamp and
report step completion, firing up a
YouTube video to avoid bothering
a more experienced coworker
for instruction: these help us do

BEST PRACTICES

Aviate-Navigate-Communicate,
but what about security?
Normalizing security in corporate flight operations
BY DANIEL FOUST
An uneventful descent from FL410 brings an American business jet into the pattern
over a small Central American airfield before being vectored to short final. Landing,
taxi, and shut down, according to the pilot's checklist, were uneventful. Another safe
flight; but is it secure?
Who drove the executives and/or their families away? What security detail is
accompanying them? What security detail is in place around the aircraft and
securing the flight crew? From your pre-mission planning, how secure is the airfield,
and what types of threats does it currently face? Is there a history of security issues
at the airport or in its region?
