    Posted by Brenda Stoltz on Thu, Jan 23, 2014

    If you’re not a giant company, you probably don’t have the resources to fully dedicate to housing an entire human resources department. To that end, it’s easy for things to slip through the cracks. Rather than risk having half-trained airport or transportation staff and being out of compliance with TSA regulations, consider outsourcing some (or all) of these common HR tasks.

    Posted by Brandon Bernard on Thu, Jul 18, 2013


    The state of being simple, uncomplicated or uncompounded; restraint in ornamentation


    Simplicity is a wonderful thing at a time where seemingly everything is getting more and more complex. As the definition suggests, simple isn’t complicated, unnecessary or overdone. There are no distractions, bells or whistles.

    But how does this apply to aviation security training? Is simplicity still a good thing?

    Let’s take a look.

    The Real Costs of Developing and Running Your Own Training Program

    Posted by Brandon Bernard on Tue, May 28, 2013

    Training is a tricky beast. At first glance, it seems it should be easy. You should only have to tell your employees what is going on, what they need to do, and how to do it, and then be able to move on. However, this is anything but the case. Developing and running your own training program can be quite costly, even more so than your first thought.

    "I have to say that using NATA is the the best decision I have made in starting and running our 135 Dept. Early on Emily and the entire group never got tired of my endless questions! *Not that they showed anyway;-). We use them for EVERYTHING, starting at PRIA, Drug Program, Records Storage, all the way thru Audit Prep and just answering all my questions. I seriously could not do this without them. Even when my rep Emily is busy, I can rely on Claudia, or Dan for immediate help. The service we receive is well worth what we pay and then some!!"

    I got a gold star from the TSA inspector who inspected our flight school last year, but that's because my company paid me ground time to research AFSP and make a new AFSP student checklist. Even so, I had one (of 3) AFSP applicants rejected initially due to some of the errors you talk about in the blog. I just wanted to shoot you an email and say thanks for making the effort to clarify the process for all of us. I get the impression that there are a lot of the CFIs out there in the small flight schools who haven't got a clue about the AFSP process. So go ahead and feel good about yourself for helping all us lost boys stay in business and out of the trouble.
