A recent survey of fewer than 60 pilots on the state of the business aviation industry’s security measures is significantly flawed, NBAA asserts. The study, by Dallas-based Aviation Marketing Consultants (AMC), concluded that “flight departments consider themselves largely immune to acts of terrorism, vandalism or other criminal activities, and little has changed in terms of their day-to-day security procedures since 9/11.”
Said NBAA: “Out of a universe of 14,000 business aircraft operators and even more pilots worldwide, this was a survey of 55 corporate pilots.” The association also added, “In the post-9/11 environment, business aircraft operators have made major strides to enhance the security of their operations.” “We stand by our methodology,” said Jim Jetton, senior partner with AMC and an owner of a company that distributes Medeco aircraft locks.
