FlightSafety ensures that crews are security savvy
Like it or not, we must now be aware of the threat of hostile people when flying. FlightSafety is working with Skydas to deliver a comprehensive course focusing on surveillance, safety and pre-trip planning.
FlightSafety now offers safety and security training for flight crews and passengers of corporate aircraft.

FlightSafety International is now offering safety and security training for flight crews and passengers of corporate aircraft. Its new Abduction Prevention course is offered by the Skydas Group in cooperation with FlightSafety. Skydas is a wide spectrum strategic security consulting and threat management firm.

“Our two-day Abduction Prevention course is designed for corporate aircraft passengers, pilots, flight attendants and maintenance technicians. It will help them to develop the core skill sets needed to prevent or avoid being targeted by hostiles while travelling at home or abroad,” says FlightSafety senior VP of sales and marketing Steve Gross.

The 15 course modules provide a comprehensive step-by-step guide to attack prevention. They include Extremist and Criminal Methodology, Travel Pre-planning and Checklists, The Attack Cycle, Surveillance Detection Skills, Personal Defence, Information Security, Surveillance Detection Routes, Surveillance Point Recognition, Security Checkpoints Abroad, Airport Security, Hotel Safety and Home and Family Security.

The course ends with a field exercise in which participants will attempt to thwart a simulated kidnapping or assault. This includes learning to discover technical surveillance devices, how to lose a mobile surveillance team and avoid static surveillance points.
