Items that were previously allowed onto airplanes such as a box cutter were banned from airports entirely. He said that passengers are no longer able to carry liquids, gels, and/or aerosols in sizes greater than three ounces past security screening. Cockpit doors on many aircrafts were strengthened and bulletproofed to prevent illicit access. Some aircrafts were equipped with CCTV cameras, so it’s possible for the pilots to monitor the cabin activity whenever they please. Pilots also now have an option to carry a gun, but must be trained to use it (Wikipedia.com), and more air marshals have been placed onto flights to improve security (Roger, about.com).
There is too much security on unnecessary things. Airports should change some security measures around. Just because a person might have a banned object, it doesn’t actually mean that they might use it in a harmful way. A person could be just trying to get home and might not be able to because they have something that is not allowed on an airplane. I think that airports should look at the person that has the banned object before they don’t allow them to fly.
Airports Use of Full Body Scanners Since September 11th 2001 airport security has changed the way security is handled, and rightfully so. The safety of American lives should be a priory in our country. Some ways airports have increased security are Specific ID required; ID name must match name on ticket, shoes must be removed at checkpoints, all baggage, carryon and checked, must be screened, no liquids (above 3.4 ounces) allowed through checkpoints, special items must be pulled from luggage (laptops), jackets, outwear must be removed, body scan machine screening, enhanced pat-downs, no more non-ticketed visitors allowed at airline gates (Seany, 2011), but the most controversial of these are the newly placed full body scan machines. Questions of privacy and ethics are the number one concern among customers. While these machines are extremely effective and bring a new perspective to security, have we gone too far?
Shades and clear glasses are not authorized because they do not form a seal around the eyes which will prevent fuel from entering in to the eyes. So ballistic eyewear is not authorized either. Preferably the handler will use goggle type protective eye wear. Hearing protection is required while wearing a Kevlar to prevent fuel from entering in to the ear cavity and also, to prevent noise damage to the ear while performing a rapid refuel to an aircraft that has its engine running. While wearing a HARP hearing protection is not required because the HARP has built-in hearing protection.
If the tool or piece of equipment is not found, the flight line must be shut down until it can be located. This incident will stop working hours of marines and delay meintence for all Military aircraft. It is very important to find missing pieces on the flight line, aircraft damage is of higher risk if FOD is near. Examples of good tool control and accountablility is making sure you know where your PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) is located. as well as all your tools and equipment, and Making sure you properly check in and out all equipment with the proper log book to qualified personel.
Chapter 1 Introduction Air travel is a fast and convenient way to reach a destination. Even if many passengers may complain of missed flights, delays during the holidays, and the number of carry-ons they are allowed to bring onto the plane, air travel is an important part of quick transportation. One essential part of the airport system is security. Today, security is a major priority that airports must administer strictly. Due to the recent terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, airports along with airlines want their customers to feel safe.
A line of crewmen walk shoulder to shoulder along the flight operations surfaces, searching for and removing any foreign objects. The objects removed are often also referred to as "FOD" although they haven't caused any damage. In this context a more appropriate translation of the acronym would be "foreign objects and debris".Aircraft saftey is a paramount concern in both civilian and military aviation. Compromising safety can cost lives, damage equipment and affect mission accomplishment. In essence, safety can be expressed as the freedom from hazard and the absence of risk.
Some people refuse to put seat belts on because they are too uncomfortable. During an interview Bohlin one said, “The pilots I worked with in the aerospace industry were willing to put on almost anything to keep them safe in case of a crash, but regular people in cars don't want to be uncomfortable even for a minute" (Ecenbarger). Certain individuals say that it’s their life and they can risk it by not putting a seat belt on if they don't’ want to. Even though some people think that having a seat
The quiet sound is also helpful because it will not frighten the veteran, Jim. Jim says, “I’m a Vietnam vet. I know what firearms are like, and we don’t need shooting around here… However, I’m a Vietnam vet and I don’t want guns going off or I’ll have flashbacks.” As I understand it, Jim does not want guns because he will get bad memories and flashbacks from when he was in the war. This supports my thesis if we use bows and arrows to kill the deer, Jim would not hear any loud sounds that would give him flashbacks. Therefore, using bows and arrows is better than guns because they are much quieter.
Resolved: The USFG Should Create A Policy That Substantially Reduces Security Measures In All United States Airports What comes to mind in terms of airport security? Is it the process of physically screening every passenger so that the plane can complete a safe journey? Is it a sham produced by the United States Federal Government (USFG) to make travelers feel better? The answer is probably a little bit of both. Immediately after the 9/11 terrorists attacks, there was an overwhelming need to review and change the security procedures that were in place at that time.
