One of our most active practice areas is business and general aviation security. We are actively engaged with a number of corporate flight departments and general aviation airports helping them introduce cost effective security best practices into their operation and leveraging that security to show return on investment.
In the past, the emphasis for civil aviation security has been on large aircraft and large airport terminals. Currently, TSA has been focusing on the general aviation community, recognizing the important role general aviation plays in civil aviation security. Having a professional and knowledgeable third party assess your aviation facility and providing sound security advice is more important than ever.
We believe that any security plan or program must complement the goals and objectives of the business and not be an impediment to conducting and/or increasing business. All security must show a return on investment through increased business. In the case of an airport, the short and long term goals must be taken into consideration in developing a sustainable security plan that can be integrated into the business plan and Airport Master Plan. The resulting security must show return on investment through increased revenue and should always be an element of an airports marketing strategy to differentiate it from other like area airports.
Our entire team of security and aviation professionals are experienced in all aspects of general and business aviation security and are dedicated to delivering cost effective and value added security solutions.
The Welsh-Sullivan Group provides security services to Fortune 500 companies, privately held companies, and high net worth individuals helping them assess the quality, effectiveness and efficiency of security and executive protection programs.
