Common Strategy Training

SAFEsky Common Strategy Training meets the requirements for flight crew security training.

The Aviation and Transportation Security Act (ATSA), created the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and tasked the Administrator of TSA to work with the Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration on security actions that may affect safety and aircraft operations. Common Strategy Training for Flight and inflight crews was developed and implemented. SAFEsky provides initial and recurrent common strategy training for flight crews at our location or yours.

Common Strategy identifies four distinct threat levels that help crew members identify their responsibilities and appropriate response:



  • Level 1: Disruptive behavior – suspicious or threatening

  • Level 2: Physicallyabusivebehavior

  • Level 3: Life-threatening behavior

  • Level 4: Attempted or actual breach of the flight deck
