International Travel and General Aviation Security

International travel is the focus of the autumn 2013 edition of General Aviation Security, the world's only magazine to focus on the unique security and safety issues for the general aviation community.

"The really neat thing about flying, however, is the opportunity for adventure by going someplace new."

    SAN ANTONIO, TX, September 11, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- "What's the point of investing the time and money in learning to fly if you don't actually go somewhere," posed Dave Hook, the magazine's publisher? "Sure, general aviators need to maintain landing and instrument approach currency. For those landings and approaches we can't get in our normal flying, we'll generally save time and money by flying around the flagpole and getting them at our home airport. The really neat thing about flying, however, is the opportunity for adventure by going someplace new. Eventually, if we keep going in a straight line for a while, we're going to cross the frontiers of our national borders," Hook explained.

The authors in this edition look from different points of view at international air travel. Security expert Joe Corrao examines the concept of pre-clearance of aircraft for entry into a country by having the aircraft, passengers, and crew accomplish customs inspections prior to departure, rather than upon arrival at their international destination in "In-Bound International GA: Is Preclearance the Answer?" Guest contributor from the South African Global Aviator Magazine Charmaine de Villiers introduces readers to flying in Africa with her article "How Safe Is It to Fly in Africa?" Publisher Hook interviews Jack McCormick, president of Bush Pilots International, in his article "Flying South of the U.S. Border." Professor Alan Kirschenbaum and coauthor Dr. Carmit Rapaport examine the relationship between how passengers act in the security queue and the cost of security in "Reducing Airport Security Costs: The Passenger Behavior Factor."

General Aviation Security Magazine is proud to introduce two new contributors to its pages. Wendy Mia Pardew is a practicing aviation lawyer in Florida. Ms. Pardew helps launch new feature column Legal News You Can Use. In this edition she examines the shadowy legal environs surrounding the latest spate of warrantless searches of private aircraft by law enforcement in her article "Is 'Because I Said So' the Basis for Warrantless Searches?" Book author Aleca King treats readers to her point of view as a veteran flight attendant. In "The Glamorous Life of a Flight Attendant" Ms. King shares both the hardship and humor of cabin crew operations. She concludes this edition with her thoughtful contribution on international communication in "The Universal Language of a Smile."
