Feb. 5, 2008, White Plains, NY – Alerion, Inc., the Family Office of Flight, announced today that it is partnering with Aviation Facilities Security Group (AFSG), a provider of select security services, to bring personally tailored security to all Alerion customers.

AFSG provides corporate general aviation and fixed based operators with the proper tools, products and resources to maintain a viable and proactive security program capable of meeting and exceeding TSA standards, providing a safe and secure environment for aircraft, passengers and employees. Among its services are physical security surveys, security program development, flight crew training, program training and aviation safety materials. AFSG assists with pre-flight analysis and security preparation, advance teams and additional security personnel as needed, and any other security information or service that may be required for any given trip.

"We chose to work with AFSG because we felt that they provide the level of quality, trustworthiness and reliability that our customers have come to expect from Alerion," said Mark Reichin, Alerion's CEO and founder. "AFSG is the best security provider in the business, with real-world experience, and we wanted to make that expertise available to our clients who have particular concerns about security wherever their travel takes them."

AFSG's executive staff are former federal agents with over 40 years of law enforcement and real-world security experience, providing executive protection to Heads of State, royal families and former US Presidents. Members of AFSG formulated and implemented the first Standard Security Program under the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) 12-5 security program. They also formulated one of the first sanctioned security programs allowing corporate and charter air carriers to fly into the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, under the enhanced security procedures of the TSA. AFSG has been instrumental in developing security programs tailored to the unique demands of charter and corporate aviation.
