Air Security International Advances Company to Prepare for Business Aviation Security Issues

Business aviation continues to advance by mitigating risk, creating better security infrastructure


Airline Insider Product Enhanced
Airline Insider, an easy-to-use, online information system, contains ratings and reports on approximately 200 carriers around the world. ASI increased the number of airlines listed by 30 percent. Organized in a simple reference format, users can list all of the airlines in the system alphabetically, by country or by region, allowing subscribers to quickly find alternative airlines without complicated database searches.

World Monitor Watch Product Created
ASI activated a new service called World Monitor Watch, following the four major global events of the past 12 months (London bombings, the tsunami, and Hurricanes Katrina and Rita). World Monitor Watch allows clients to frequent one Web site to quickly review all relevant news sources in chronological order. Clients can easily follow a catastrophic event without spending additional time and money pulling from a variety of sources.

New Investigations Division Started
ASI acquired Paladin Investigations, Inc., a private investigations firm that conducts investigations for the business, financial and legal communities as well as for select individuals. Now under the umbrella of ASI's Investigations Division, Paladin relocated to ASI headquarters. Services include: background, asset and insurance investigations; pre-employment screening; due diligence; surveillance; subject locates; public records research; uncover operations; and patent and trademark violations.

ASI Meets Security Assessment Needs of Corporate Aviation
In light of the NBAA Security Council's efforts and of events such as the stolen $7 million Cessna Citation 7 in St. Augustine, Fla., security initiatives are on the rise throughout the corporate aviation community. Complacency is what the council and ASI clients are trying to avoid. ASI experts have spent much of the past 12 months developing better security infrastructure for flight departments. ASI's security assessment service has increased by 30 percent this year. In addition to re-examining security procedures in buildings and hangars, many flight departments are also returning to the basics: keeping their crews and passengers safe while on the road.
