It's the section most people skip to first; they are the pages we get chased for ever before the issue is due out; and, the contents represent the reality of the broad spectrum of security challenges our industry faces.

Skyjacks, bombings, brawls, bomb hoxes, rocket attacks, intoxicated passengers, assaults, cyber attacks, insider crime, acts of cockpit laser illumination and close encounters with drones...

Air Watch is your round-up of the news from the two-month period preceeding each issue.

He is the first point of contact by many of the national and international media outlets when they are in need of expert comment following an aviation security-related incident; as such heregularly commentates for CNN, Sky and the BBC. In January 2010, Philip was used as an expert witness in the United Kingdom’s House of Commons’ Home Affairs Select Committee inquiry into aviation security in the aftermath of the attempted downing of an aircraft by a suicide bomber on Christmas Day 2009.

Philip started working within the aviation industry in the 1980s, when he joined Trans World Airlines’ security subsidiary at London Heathrow. From Duty Manager at Heathrow he moved to TWA’s International HQ where he ultimately became Manager Security Training and Auditing, until leaving in 1996 to establish his own consultancy company, Green Light Ltd.

Philip is now an accredited instructor and courseware developer for the International Air Transport Association (IATA). He has also co-authored and edited two books on aviation security. Philip has also interviewed persona from government ministers to aircrew and hostages to hijackers (including Leila Khaled)!
